The Cambridge Housing Market – both sales and lettings – remains as resilient as ever no matter how much Mr Robert Peston plots its downfall. It has always been thus, of course
That unique combination of University City of international renown, centre of high-tech excellence and buoyant employment market has always ensured that our housing market weathers international economic storms far better than most.
Sales are still strong with the city most in demand – nothing seems to change – whilst Lettings continue to move from strength to strength with a seemingly never-ending supply of top-quality tenants and investors keen on bricks and mortar over more volatile investment vehicles. When other investments are wobbling it seems rational to invest in property and the Guided Busway has now focussed attention on the villages between Cambridge and St Ives. With property values surprisingly realistic and a steady stream of available tenants, wise investors are now looking closely just outside the City as well as the more traditional inner city locations.
