Why your broadband speed may affect your home sale
By Alex at Aboda, Nov 28 2018 08:07PM
An increasing number of people looking to buy homes in the Wisbech area are deciding on the suitability of a home based on the availability of high speed fibre broadband to the property.
A quick analysis of sales volumes to date in 2018 indicates that in areas where sales have increased compared to the same period last year, on average virtually half of all properties have access to ultra-fast broadband, with an average download speed of 46.4mbps.
In contrast, in those areas where sales have fallen, just under one third of properties have access to ultra-fast broadband and the average download speed is slightly lower at just 42.9mbps.
While broadband coverage and speed may well not be the most important factors in choosing which home to buy, their impact on daily live is ever increasing. 89% of adults now use the internet each week, up from just 51% in 2006 (ONS), and a rising proportion of the population works from home for at least part of the week.
If you'd like to discuss the property market in the local Wisbech area, or your home's current value, please do get in touch. I will be happy to help
