How are house prices faring in Royston in 2022?

According to Rightmove, at the start of 2022, house prices in Royston are faring as follows;

The majority of sales in Royston during the last year were semi-detached properties, selling for an average price of £382,506. Terraced properties sold for an average of £333,769, with detached properties fetching £560,220.

Overall, sold prices in Royston over the last year were similar to the previous year and 8% up on the 2018 peak of £342,309.”

With house prices in Royston being similar to last year, there is consistency in the market, but vendors should take note of the increase in house prices since 2018. Even though that was considered to be a peak time for property prices in Royston, home prices are higher these days, which might be all the incentive you need to consider selling your house.

If you are considering selling your Royston home, we are more than happy to connect you with willing buyers. We aim to offer as much support to the Royston community as we can in 2022, and we look forward to assisting you any way we can in the housing market.

At Country Properties, we are fully committed to offering you the best standard of service, and we are also committed to supporting local communities, such as the one we adore in Royston.

For every instruction we receive in the New Year, we promise to plant trees.

There are many reasons why it is a great idea to plant five trees in town and city areas, including:

1.       A mature and leafy tree has the ability to provide enough oxygen for ten people

2.       Studies indicate trees help people feel more relaxed and at ease

3.       Trees are vital in capturing and storing carbon and carbon dioxide

4.       Trees collect a lot of air pollution and toxins

5.       Trees provide shade, and play a key role in cooling down towns

These are just a handful of the reasons we are committed to planting trees in and around Royston because we care about the local community.

In line with Government guidelines, our Royston branch is open and is staffed with sales and lettings personnel.  If you would like an accurate, no obligation, valuation of your property to sell or to let then please call us on 01763 245121 or email
