This is the usual seasonal slowdown and nothing unusual. We will have to wait until January to see how the real market is performing and whether the governments concession on Stamp Duty for First Time...

Pre-Christmas Market Review

David Edwards, Managing Director. All of a sudden it seems Christmas is starting! With still 5 weeks to go the first mince pies were served up in our office today. It doesn’t look good for the team’s diet!

September 2017 Market Comment

Market Comment from David Edwards, Managing Director. Well, that’s the end of the summer and even Autumn, we seem to have moved straight into winter!

August 2017 Market Comment

Market Comment from David Edwards, Managing Director.  It seems the market is unsure which way to go, June was a buoyant month as a bounce back after the election was witnessed with the number of sales agreed per branch increasing from May to June. July was a bit quieter as we started to lead into the summer holiday season. This seems to be the same story nationally with the NAEA reporting that...
