My prediction is that property that has the following 7 features will be in high demand, post COVID.

1 Within 90 min of a major business hub
2. Within 90 min of the coast and/or open country
3 With fast ( at least 32mbs) broadband
4. With 4G mobile phone connectivity
5. With good local services
6. With good local state and private schools
7 With good local culture, theatre, music, etc.

Salisbury hits all the spots.

We live on an unadopted road going nowhere, less than 5 miles from the city centre. The house cost us £265,000 in 1999.
We are advised that the market price today is north of £900,000. I view this as complete madness.
Three doors up is a 1970s 2 bed bungalow on a large plot. It is on the market at £425,000: it will be snapped up, demolished and a new 4/5 bed house put on the plot that will hit £1m.







That's all down here, this area has always been ahead in terms of quality of lifestyle and at the moment the only properties that are hanging in the market are the two million plus one's, I don't think will last long though.

The bungalow demolition game has been going on down here for twenty years or so now that we have been aware of, it's an old game for us.

In Salcombe and Dartmouth they'll find a house or bungalow for a million and demo it and stick a block of hipster flats in for stupid money.. they just want a small space they can lock up and leave it seems.
It keeps the tradesmen in business which is an advantage, sadly the trade off is those same tradesmen cannot afford to live in those towns, that's progress I suppose.

Is your PV solar array generating more?
Not at present - panels need cleaning again...

That's one of the downside to FiT I suppose. Modern panels are self-cleaning and much more efficient, but if you change them, you lose the FiT payments.

Gloucestershire too. What amazes me is that people seem quite happy to fork out what to me seems like astronomical prices for the resulting houses, 5 bedroom/double garage type jobs but on tiny little quarter-acre plots. We prefer to keep a decent distance from the neighbours, which is why we have a tatty old pile in a large plot of land.



Tim, I recall my first boss telling me that in a good house you cannot see, hear or smell your neighbours.

Self cleaning panels, but mine are on a flat roof and laid flat. When the system eventually gets revamped (when it comes time to replace the invertor, which apparently has long past it's normal life, so I am regularly informed) the panels will be angled a little, which should help the self cleaning properties.

Graham ..... as a rule of thumb the panels should be angled at the same number of degrees as your latitude (57° here) ..... presuming you don't live on the equator you should get noticeably more output!! 🙂
