Simon Pelling, Partner of Fine & Country Mid Essex comments on the region:

"Premium property in Central-and-Mid-Essex continues to perform well, with increased demand from buyers now looking a little further afield as a result of changes in working practices following the pandemic.

"We are seeing demand for large homes with a home office, annexe or separate working area being particularly popular.

"Our buyer profile has also hanged; the demographic is now a younger professional buyer making a first, second or third move to one of our region's premium homes. Where pre-pandemic, we were seeing it typically being buyers in their late 40s and 50s that fulfilled our sellers' demands. The result in the younger buyer means homes designed and furnished/decorated to a style and taste to support a younger audience are proving popular.

"Supply of quality property remains tight, with prices holding firm. It continues to be a seller’s market, which we envisage continuing at least into 2022."
