John Smale Market Comment December 2019
As one would expect this market comment as the last one for 2019 is not going to be full of Christmas joy as the last few months have been a bit of a challenge. All will be revealed after Thursday, but if we make progress in any direction then we might well see some confidence returning at the beginning of the year. This is the comment from Mark Hayward, Propertymark Chief Executive ; 'Brexit is undoubtedly causing uncertainty in the housing market, which in turn affects sentiment and decision-making. On top of both a Brexit deadline and a looming general election, we’re also entering a quieter period seasonally, where we typically see the market slow down as people put their moving plans on hold until the New Year. Once the General Election has passed, and there’s clarity on how and when we’ll be leaving the EU, we hope there will be a degree of certainty which may trigger a flurry of activity in the New Year.'
So lets hope we are both right and activity is increased. If you need to sell, then the time to consider marketing house is actually Boxing day! Rightmove report a massive spike on this day with a surge of activity on their website, with people making new plans for 2020. We can visit and advise and then get it all ready for you.
Have a Happy Christmas and lets hope moving House is easier in 2020.
