Where to buy or let in Market Drayton?

Properties for sale – Popular cul-de-sacs include Drayton Grove. Homes in this area are popular with families looking to get into catchment areas for Market Drayton infant school and nursery.  Also Marley Mount Crescent boasts sensitive architecture within an easy walk of the bustling retail centre. There are also new houses going up along the A53 that are attracting mature couples looking to downsize to easy to maintain properties and young families in search of low maintenance living.  For those looking for a more established community, Waterside Drive remains popular because of its access to the waterways of the Shropshire Union canal, leisure club and amenities.

Properties to let – Demand for rental properties is high in Market Drayton, with demand outstripping supply. Unlike Stoke-on-Trent with its Universities and Hospitals, the number of properties available to rent in Drayton is currently short of the demand. During 2017 we saw an increase in the number of young couples enquiring about renting for the first time and a steady flow of recently single adults looking for 6,12 or 18 months rentals.

“Overall the housing market in Market Drayton is positive. We’ve seen more enquires throughout January than the same period last year. And we expect this to increase again as we head into April. So putting your house on at the correct price as we head into spring will greatly improve the speed of sale. The exceptions being some of the unique period properties that take a buyer who is committed to preserving or enhancing an older property."
