Lack of New Properties in Bristol as Demand Rises



More new property needs to be built in Bristol to satisfy the current level of demand for quality new homes in the city.

Many developers have scaled back on their build programmes during the recession which has resulted in a distinct shortfall of new properties.

Fortunately those that had the foresight to maintain their build schedules are now in a strong position to satisfy the renewed demand with a selection of properties ideal for the discerning house hunter.

One developer that has been robust enough to ride out the downturn is Crest Nicholson which continued to build at its Harbourside development on the city’s docks.

It means those wanting a new apartment overlooking the historic floating harbour and within short walking distance of the city centre will find a selection of one and two-bedroom properties all ready for immediate occupation.

Vicky Dudbridge, from selling agent King Sturge said:

“The recession saw a decrease of property development in the city as house builders took steps to reduce outgoings and limit investments in order to survive the recession.

But those that maintained their build programme throughout the downturn now have properties ready for occupation which allows home owners to buy now.”

An example of Crest’s foresight is the latest phase on The Crescent. Called Beacon House it boasts a selection of modern and spacious apartments and will be coming on the market in 2010.

Vicky added:

“There’s no doubt that Harbourside is not only the premier waterside development in Bristol but is just about the only development that can offer a wide range of properties ideal for all house hunters.

We are in an enviable location and people realise that this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a new property right on the water in the heart of the city. With all the amenities on their doorstep, purchasers cannot find what we have to offer anywhere else in Bristol.”
