In addition, the last three months have seen the firm agree more than £51 million new sales at an average selling price of £470,000. To keep up with the demand for its services, Lillicrap Chilcott has recently recruited four new members of staff to join its highly experienced and award winning team.
Ian Lillicrap and Andrew Chilcott are reporting a distinct return of confidence among purchasers who see the current market as a buying opportunity with prices having changed by anything up to 20% in Cornwall.
Encouragingly, the company reports that it is also seeing some properties gently rising in value as the demand for quality homes increases. For the first time in 18 months it has a constant stream of London and Home Counties buyers returning to make quick and impetuous, yet decisive, purchases right across the price ranges and throughout the county.
The out-of-county buyer is a phenomenon to which Lillicrap Chilcott is long accustomed but which has been largely absent during the credit crunch period. For buyers like these, Cornwall represents a safe haven in which to invest cash that is currently earning little or no return in the bank.
As a company, Lillicrap Chilcott remains dedicated to ensuring it offers the best choice in Cornwall of individual and character properties, across all price ranges and throughout the whole of the county.
