Garrington East provides a Cambridge home search and investment service for clients interested in securing a property within the city. This is by far the most sought after city and area in the region, and the high level of competition is not helped by the fact that the city suffers an imbalance in its housing stock. Historically, Cambridge was defined as ‘Town and Gown’ so it was not generally felt that there was a need for a substantial number of larger properties, and a large proportion of those that do exist are still in University ownership. Due to the outstanding success of the ‘Cambridge Phenomenon’ and the growth of the science and business parks across the City demand for larger, well-placed family homes vastly outweighs supply.
In light of the above, professional representation is strongly advised as our Team are able to source the best opportunities for those choosing a Cambridge home search both on and off-market; through their extensive network of influential, local contacts. Early information is vital in being able to advise a client effectively and ensure the most successful buying credentials are adopted to gain a edge in such a competitive market.
Many clients are attracted to a Cambridge home search due to the high standards of both private and state schooling and this is a major driver for the Cambridge housing market. Cambridge University provides vibrant activity for the retail sector and rental markets and the city enjoys well over 4 million tourists per year, who are encouraged by the many historical College buildings and cultural pursuits.
Over recent years there has been a significant increase in the profile of the city, due to its growing recognition as a hub of technological and scientific expertise. The Genome Centre is based just outside of the city and there is a substantial medical research area centred around Addenbrookes Hospital in the South of the city. The area is now home to a large number of internationally recognised companies, particularly in the field of research and development. Companies include Napp pharmaceuticals, Microsoft Research, ARM and Autonomy.
The popular requirement for a Cambridge home search is also bolstered by both road and rail links. Rail links to the capital are well served with fast, frequent train services to London Kings Cross and London Liverpool Street, with the M11 Motorway providing access to the south and to Stansted Airport some 30 miles away.
Cambridge has a transient, international workforce attracted by the University and considerable employment opportunities within the city; helping to sustain a buoyant housing market not just in terms of ownership but also with one of the largest private rental sectors in the UK.
Garrington East is in a unique position to offer a tailored Cambridge home search to meet a wide variety of client’s needs.
