Despite evidence of a slowdown in the property market across southern England, demand for Welwyn Garden City homes is still strong.

According to recent reports by The Times and The Independent backed by several industry sources, prices nationwide fell by nearly one per cent in January, with estate agencies in many areas struggling to find buyers.

The regional slowdown has been attributed to Britain’s looming departure from the EU, and changes to Stamp Duty.

But Mark Shearing, boss of Putterills in Wigmores North, Welwyn Garden City, said the local picture was quite different.

He told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “In our experience, Welwyn Garden City is bucking that trend.

“Demand is up on the same period last year.

“If properties come on the market at the right price, we get a good number of buyers.”
