Demand for property in Gunwharf Quays hits record levels as summer approaches

Wed 10 May 2017

Demand for all types of properties in Gunwharf Quays is at an exceptionally high level, with many people looking to secure a home in the picturesque waterside development in time for summer.

Vanessa Potter, lettings manager at Leaders, the only estate agents based in Gunwharf Quays, says people love living in the area and there have been many recent examples of properties selling or letting extremely quickly.

“Only last week we put a one-bedroom apartment on the rental market on a Friday and by Saturday morning it had been secured by a tenant,” she explains. “Our sales and lettings teams are frequently seeing properties remain on the market for just a few days before they are snapped up.”

Vanessa says one and two-bedroom apartments are currently in the highest demand among tenants. These properties “fly out of the door” once they become available, while student properties are also extremely popular among academics seeking a high-quality home.

She also believes the current pace of the Gunwharf Quays property market is no surprise when the harbour’s most attractive features are taken into consideration.

“Gunwharf is a modern, stylish, clean and tidy place to live, while it is also incredibly safe. There are shops, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities within just a few steps of most apartments, while the mainline rail station is only five minutes away.

“The properties are all located in nice areas and most offer stunning views of either Gunwharf itself or the Spinnaker Tower, the city or across the ocean.”
