The Telford Property Market is Booming

Telford is going from strength to strength and the property market is booming - thanks in part to the council’s major investment in the borough’s schools. 

Two new state-of-the-art schools have recently opened with catchment areas covering Madeley and Ironbridge and we have seen significant interest in those areas as a result. 

Abraham Darby Academy, based in between Madeley and Ironbridge, and Madeley Academy, in the heart of Madeley, are very popular and parents are now looking for houses for sale in Telford within the catchment areas to ensure their children get a place. 

That’s great news if you are looking to sell a house in Telford - you’ve got a hot property on your hands! 

As Telford estate agents, we think the town as a whole is going through a major revival with the magnificent Southwater development and the huge investment in schools - as an example, the two schools mentioned in this blog cost a combined £65 million to build. 

There are more new schools on the horizon too, with the Holy Trinity Academy in Priorslee due to open later this year and The Charlton School in Wellington currently being rebuilt. So if you own a house in Priorslee or Wellington, you may well find it easier to sell now than at any time in recent years. 

The proof of this rise in demand is clearly demonstrated by our Telford office’s sales figures - they are currently up by 12% compared to this time last year, and we are predicting continued growth as 2015 goes on.

So the future for Telford is bright - and long may it continue.
