Anglesey & Gwynedd Property Sales Market Review 2024

It’s time to dive into the latest trends and insights for the Anglesey and Gwynedd property market. With the recent election results and the unique dynamics of devolution in Wales, there’s plenty to discuss about what lies ahead for the remainder of 2024.

Current Market Snapshot

The property market in Anglesey and Gwynedd has shown remarkable resilience over the past year. Despite economic uncertainties, the demand for properties in these picturesque regions remains robust. Coastal charm, stunning landscapes, and a strong sense of community continue to attract buyers.

Impact of the Election Result

With the recent election resulting in a new Labour government, there are a couple of key areas to watch:

  • Housing Policies: Labour’s promises to address housing shortages and affordability could bring positive changes. Potential initiatives to increase housing supply and support first-time buyers may stimulate market activity.
  • Taxation and Regulation: Any changes in property taxes or regulations will be crucial. Labour’s stance on buy-to-let investments and capital gains tax could impact investor behaviour, potentially leading to shifts in the rental market.

Devolution and the Welsh Assembly

The property market in Wales operates under a unique framework due to devolution and the powers of the Welsh Assembly. Here’s how this may influence the Anglesey and Gwynedd markets:

  • Welsh Government Policies: The Welsh Government has its own housing policies, which can differ from those in England. Initiatives such as the Land Transaction Tax (LTT) and specific affordable housing schemes can have a direct impact on the market.
  • Localised Support: The Welsh Assembly often prioritises localised support for housing and infrastructure projects. This could mean more tailored initiatives to address the specific needs of communities in Anglesey and Gwynedd.
  • Sustainability Focus: The Welsh Government has a strong emphasis on sustainability and environmental considerations. Expect to see more support for eco-friendly housing developments and green infrastructure projects.
  • Article 4’s Impact on Gwynedd Market: We also need to consider what will happen if Gwynedd Council implement Article 4 later this year and how it will shape the property market in Gwynedd. Buckle up, because this could be a game-changer!

What is Article 4?

Article 4 is a directive that allows local authorities to remove certain permitted development rights. Essentially, it means that property owners will need to obtain planning permission for specific changes that were previously allowed without it. This can include converting homes into Holiday homes, HMO’s and certain extensions.

Market Forecast for 2024

Looking ahead, we anticipate a dynamic market for the remainder of 2024:

  • Steady Demand: The allure of Anglesey and Gwynedd’s natural beauty and quality of life and quality of life encourages many locals to remain in the area and may possibly continue to draw buyers for further afield.
  • Price Stability: While we don’t foresee dramatic price increases, the market should remain stable. Well-priced properties in desirable locations will still attract competitive offers. If Article 4 is introduced, then time will tell if this will have either a positive or negative impact on the local homeowners house price as their properties may then need to be valued on a restricted basis of Open Market Value.
  • Investment Shifts, Opportunities & Threats: Investors may find opportunities in the evolving rental market. With potential policy changes, now is a good time to assess investment strategies. Investors may change focus to properties that either comply with Article 4 or offer unique opportunities for development within the new guidelines.
  • Sustainable Developments: Eco-friendly and sustainable housing developments are likely to gain traction. Buyers are increasingly seeking energy-efficient homes that align with environmental values.

Conclusion

The Anglesey and Gwynedd property market is poised for an exciting year ahead. With the election bringing potential policy shifts and the unique influence of devolution, staying informed and adaptable will be key. Whether you’re buying, selling, or investing, 2024 promises to be a year of opportunities.
