Hi there, welcome to another episode of our Brexit Update – we just couldn’t resist – it’s the 29th March, the day when we’re meant to be leaving the EU. Thunder clouds were meant to be above us, but no, I’m stood here in beautiful sunshine – and the world is still turning. Let’s be honest, we’re all getting a little bit bored of Brexit and all the things that come with it.
But none the less, what’s happening out there in the market, that’s what everyone wants to know at the moment in time. And generally speaking, we’re pleased to report that again, the world is carrying on, the number of buyers that were registering might have slipped a little bit, but the number of viewings we’re carrying out is massively up where they were last year.
Last week we reported a 30% plus increase and on the month a 20% increase, we have seen a slight tail off in the number of offers we’ve received but again that’s still 5% up compared to last month.
So what does this mean for a buyer or someone who’s thinking about getting moving in this market, well as we’ve often said, the anticipation is often worse than the reality. People just want to get moving, they want to carry on with their lives and that’s the sense that we’re getting out there at the moment.
