The Shaftesbury Property Market

The Hills are Alive…

…in the Shaftesbury Property Market

Did you know, in the past 12 months, over £100m worth of property has sold in the SP7 area?* This suggests, in the rolling hills of Shaftesbury, the market is very active.

That said, there is nervousness and indecisiveness, so if you’re considering selling your property, you’ll need the support of a patient, determined and experienced estate agent – like DOMVS.
