Property in Cambridge
Cambridge is a relatively small city, it has a charming centre with winding, narrow streets and cobblestone roads that are popular with visitors who come to marvel at the historical buildings that are exceptionally well preserved.
Those who live here also enjoy the historical centre, independent shops and choice of excellent eateries. Finding a home to buy here can be tricky, especially in the most desirable spots. On the most sought after roads there is far greater demand from buyers than there are properties available to buy, some of the best addresses in Cambridge include Latham and Chaucer Road.
The Cambridge property market is often compared to that of prime London hotspots with properties changing hands often without coming to the open market or for over the list price.
To get ahead of the competition, Garrington’s property finders tap into their network to get early access for their clients where possible. With their local industry knowledge and expertise, our buying agents conduct thorough research prior to negotiations to secure the property at the best possible price.
