Living in Bournemouth for over 25 years, I have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge about the area.

Having vast knowledge of how all agents in Bournemouth work and based on my past sellers’ feedback, has led to me deeply understanding that the sellers need better marketing and a more personal approach, hence my joining The Agency UK.

I now have all the tools and time I need to provide a genuine one-on-one experience. Concentrating on a select group of clients at any one time means that my sellers, buyers, and the sale get the attention they deserve.

The property market in Bournemouth

Five years ago, house prices in Bournemouth, Poole, and Christchurch were above the national average and continue to be so today.

The real estate market is robust, and there isn’t enough supply at the moment, which is contributing to fierce buyer demand. We don’t anticipate this situation to change any time soon.

In Bournemouth, the real estate market has been on a steady rise for some time. House prices in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole and surrounding areas have increased from £245,188 to an average of £309,741 over the past six years, a growth rate that is sure not going anywhere anytime soon!

Some of the most desirable areas in Bournemouth to buy a home include Westbourne, Boscombe, Sandbanks, Southbourne and Winton. The properties in these areas are very popular and often come with a high price tag.

If you’re looking for a more family-friendly setting, there’s nothing better than Southbourne. Houses in this area tend to be on the larger side, and it’s not uncommon to find properties with seven or eight bedrooms here.

In central Bournemouth, you’ll find many Victorian properties known to be very cosy, with original features and high ceilings. They can also come at a lower price than other areas in Bournemouth.

If you’re looking for something completely different, there’s nothing more unique than Sandbanks. Properties here are among the most expensive in the world, and the area has its shops and restaurants for residents of the area to enjoy.

Working with a good estate agent is essential if you’re looking for your first home, dream house, or investment opportunity. Their role is much more than simply finding the right home for you; they also ensure that the entire process goes as smooth as possible and protect your interests throughout your property search.

    Ian Taylor has been amazing…

    Ian Taylor has been amazing from start to finish! When our original sale fell through due to poor communication from our previous agents we did not hesitate to instruct Ian after he impressed us on the property we were purchasing. Ian’s communication and ability to push things forward has been key to getting the sales through and in a very timely manner. Thanks so much Ian for all your help, it has been very much appreciated!

    I cannot thank you enough.

    As a first-time buyer I had no idea of the process and Ian Taylor was really helpful and attentive every step of the way. It was not a smooth process from start to finish but he definitely went above and beyond to make it smooth for us. Ian also responded to all my queries and he did very quickly which put my mind at ease. Hands down, If you want to get things done in a smooth quick and efficient way you definitely need Ian Taylor. Thank you so much for helping me buy my first home!

    Makes buying or selling as smooth as possible

    Ian is very transparent from the start of the sales process . He is extremely hard working and is one of very few agents I have ever dealt with that actually do what they say they will do. Ian will always keep you up to date and gets back to you very promptly. He follows everything up to completion and tries to get ahead of the process. I would highly recommend TAUK if you want to buy or sell, Ian is very professional, honest and a pleasure to deal with
