Should I Be Buying A Property In Bournemouth Right Now?

Should I Be Buying A Property In Bournemouth Right Now?

Is there ever a good time to buy a property and why would you buy a property during a global pandemic? The answer is if you live in Bournemouth – this is absolutely what you should be doing.

The pretty coastal town of Bournemouth has been identified as one of three key areas where property prices have increased during Covid-19 and are subsequently set to rocket as thousands of people intend to swap inner city living for a seaside escape –  so why wouldn’t you?

Bournemouth is the home to one of the UK’s best beaches and in normal times, has plenty to offer from hip boutiques and incredible restaurants to an impressive live music scene and fun things to do.

Now more than ever is a great time to be purchasing a property either as a first-time buyer or a second-time buyer. Tenants in Bournemouth will know that rental prices in the town are on the steep side and are probably wondering if they will ever be able to get onto the property ladder.

We are here to tell you that you absolutely will! In fact, we can assure you that you have the potential to reduce the amount that you pay out to live in your flat or house by almost 90%.

Here is how – say you are renting a property and are paying between £800-£900 per month. This is an expensive outlay – especially in these uncertain times. If you were to take advantage of the property prices in Bournemouth you could get a £100,000 mortgage on an interest only basis on say a one-bedroom property in Boscombe and only pay in the region of £120 per month.

If this doesn’t tell you to stop renting and to secure a place on the property ladder, we don’t know what will. Interest rates are at the lowest level and this is a pivotal time to buy before property prices are set to rocket even further.

Not sure where to start? Give the friendly Bournemouth Estate Agents, Lovett a call and we can help you not only find your dream home in Bournemouth and Poole, but will also help you get the wheels in motion with regards to having your own dedicated conveyancer and mortgage brokers on hand – something that no other property agent in the Dorset area offers.

It is time to stop dreaming and start searching for your ideal property – do not let this amazing opportunity pass you by. Call Lovett on 01202 303044 or email info@lovettinternational.com

Couldn't wish for a more professional and warm service. James and Abbie have been helpful and reassuring every step of the way; with no pushy or aggressive sales tactics! Every email and telephone call has been answered and nothing has been too much effort for them.Quite simply, the best estate agent we have had the pleasure to work with. Thank you!

I would just like to say a personal thank you to Clair Clarke from the Boscombe branch. She has gone above and beyond, in and out of working hours, to ensure that not only did the sale of my property go through but also the purchase of our new home, which might I add was even with a separate estate agents. Clair chased solicitors on both sides while keeping all vendors involved happy. I genuinely believe that if Clair hadn’t been involved in the process, the chain would have fallen apart. She is an asset to your team.Thanks again,Will

We struggled for months trying to find our first letting, no other estate agents in the area have what Lovett have. A great selection of properties and a great selection of employees. From the start Natalia was prompt and welcoming responding to our enquiries, arranging a viewing for practically the same day! Duanne showed us around what is now our new home, she was friendly, informative and dealt with our application very efficiently. Within the next few days Duanne, Louise and Abi, had all our paper work put together. We had never rented before, however communication with the Lovett staff made it seem a very easy process. Within a few weeks we had our keys (With Abi happily staying in office later on a bank holiday weekend, as we were late - sorry Abi🙂)very impressed with our new home! Many thanks to you all.

This was a grateful experience, Duanne was very polite and pleasant with us and one thing that caught our attention was after seeing the property Duanne gave us a brochure with photos and descriptions of the place, that was very well presented and easy to understand.

We're first time buyers and have spent 6 long and at times painful months going through what turned out to be a very extended process. Clair Clarke was with us every step of the way and went above and beyond at each stage. She was in regular contact with me throughout - far more than the solicitor - weekly and towards the end, daily, to keep me updated and informed of action between all parties. She's approachable and professional and I'd definitely recommend her to others. 5*+!

Lovett’s have been amazing from start to finish with my sale, Dave, poppy, Josh and Roxy in the office have been fabulous! I originally lost my 1st sale due to issue with my maintenance company however poppy managed to get property re sold within 48 hours of losing my 1st buyer.Also cannot forget Clair, the Sale Progressor! She was constantly on the ball making sure everything was going through smoothly constantly updating me along the journey and of course answering my silly questions.Honestly I highly recommend using Lovett’s they have been wonderful from start to finish! Thank you guys for your support!

Lovetts were a joy to deal with throughout the sale of our apartment, from the initial contact with David, through to Josh who handled many of the viewings and Poppy who secured the sale and Claire who handled the completion and sale. A great team who did all they could to get us a proceedable buyer and a swift sale. Thank you all.

Since the summer of 2020 I have instructed Lovett on 5 occasions. I have taken the decision to sell our small portfolio of Leasehold flats that have served us well for the best part of 20 years. Time to move on to other projects.It's been a long journey that has culminated in the last two exchanging contracts within 24 hours of each other.The service we have had has been exemplary and special note has to be made of the effort that has been made by Clair Clarke who has steered all the sales from start to finish.Big weight off our shoulders as I write this. Cheers everybody 10 out 10.Ian and Christine.

James and Abbey and the team at Poole worked really hard with the sale of our property, they set up a whole day of constant viewings, leading to offers, the photos taken were exceptional and showed the property off really well.James was very supportive even with our purchase, advising us when we definitely needed advice, not having moved for over 30 years. Several purchases fell through and he kept both our purchasers and ourselves updated, helping to push and progress our purchase when needed.The sale went on for several months due to us losing properties and he managed to keep our buyer involved.No hesitation in recommending Lovett Estate agents in Parkstone they are a professional, supportive, friendly team.

We used Lovett for the sale of our property, it has been a very long process for us (through no fault of Lovett) and we have received a very good service from all that we dealt with throughout. One star lost through some minor issues early on in the process, including loss of our house key, but the situation was dealt with well and rectified. The sales progressor, Clair Clarke definitely warrants a specific mention as she was exceptional. Thank you all!

Just completed on sale of a flat in Boscombe. Long drawn out process through no fault of the agents which I don't think would ever have gone through if it was not for the fantastic job done by the 'sale chaser' Clair Clark. Everyone we dealt with at Lovetts were professional, well informed, courteous and always responded quickly to any queries but Clair was a particular diamond. Prior to selling the flat was let via Lovett International for some time and the lettings department were also first class. Would not consider using any other agent in the area

We’ve just completed on our first home, James and Abbey made the whole process stress free. Abbey was the agent that first showed us the property and she was lovely and told us loads of information. James was very good at keeping us updated throughout the whole process never felt like it was hard to get hold of anyone so we always knew what was happening! Would highly recommend😊

I researched about 4 different Letting Agents. I liked the rates charged by Lovett the most, and although all the agents were lovely, I decided to go with Cailey. I was not disappointed and a lovely new tenant the next day at the full rental price agreed.

For some, selling a property is a rare experience that requires guidance and clear explanations with a prompt response to questions asked. By introducing the team members who will play key roles in the sales process it gave me more understanding of the timescales and processes, all very helpful when I am in a different country and restricted by travel regulations due to the pandemic. I felt reassured on many occasions when contacting any of the team by phone - they all understood my property and where we were in the sales process, making me feel valued. A great professional team. Thank you.

This was such a positive experience from viewing to getting the keys. They treat you like a human being and not just a number. They consider everything and are very warm and welcoming (which I've never experienced with a letting agency) Cailey in particular was fantastic she was friendly, helpful, professional and patient. She supported us throughout the whole process that could have been very stressful but she made ita breeze. Would recommend to all!! Best experience I've ever had with letting agent.

James, Abbey and the team did an amazing job for us in successfully marketing our property and then helping to complete the sale.The photos and video they put together were professional and of high quality- it generated instantly a full week of viewings.We didn’t though need the full week - it sold after the viewings on the first day, with many offers tabled by very happy prospective buyers.Lovett then recommended a conveyancing team who completed in six weeks, with James continuing to support both the buyers and us with questions and any paperwork etc.Lovett had successfully rented the property out for us for two years previously and we are delighted with their service over the years.Highly recommend them across all their branches in the area.

This is the first review in 40 years i have given regarding an estate agent.James came as agreed, took photo's and a video tour, and put the house on the market the next day as he said. We then received a call and email confirmations from Abbey regarding 8 viewings within 24 hours and have accepted an offer. (not the highest). The service and professionalism has been second to none. Fantastic service, really pro-active and extremely well escorted viewings by Abbey amazing to say the least. Thank you and can't recommend Lovett's enough.

I would highly recommend the team at Lovett - they say moving house is one of the most stressful events in your life and they are not kidding BUT Clair supported me through the whole process, she went way above my expectations. The quality and attention to detail of the sales team was excellent - I was regularly kept up to-date with what was happening on the general market but also provided with solutions to ensure I secured a buyer to a successful conclusion. I cant thank them all enough.
