Village Values

In a Sunday Times article last year it was suggested that the following features in a village would add to the value of property. Read on…

  • Village Shop/Post Office; (Yes and yes, add about £5,000)
  • Population less than 5,000 (Just?),
  • and in Domesday Book (Yes, add £1,000).
  • Public House listed by CAMRA, Good Food or Good Pub Guide, (Not yet? But Betley lost theirs, so add £5,000 anyway.
  • Church, medieval with spire in historic setting, and Chapel, (Almost yes, yes, add £10,000 -.and donate it to them?…..)
  • Schools, good primary with small class sizes, (Yes, add up to 10% premium, and more for the other good schools here)
  • Community Groups (Yes, good)..but these have no financial influence, (bad)….but do have a feelgood factor, (good)..and friendliness can sway buyer’s decision…(assuming you want to sell, but good anyway).

Add all this up, plus

  • Car accessory shop
  • Newsagents
  • Off-licence
  • Butchers
  • Indian Restaurant/Takeaway
  • Chinese Takeaway
