Moving Made Easy has seen a particularly buoyant beginning to the new decade across all three of their regional offices, with January bringing in a record number of Assisted Moved and Part Exchange instructions, offers on over £53.4m of property and an uplift in agreed sales of 24% over January 2019.
Southern Region MD and co-owner Robert Poole is feeling upbeat: “The last six months have seen a real struggle within the property market with the Brexit saga hovering above homeowners like thunder clouds at a picnic. Now that the political skies are clearing, buyers really are out in force looking at new build properties. Our efficient and results-orientated Assisted Sale and Part Exchange services have delivered record breaking plot sales numbers for our UK housebuilder clients.”
A scroll through social media and property trade websites reveal similar reports and an increasingly optimistic property industry. Rightmove has recorded purchaser enquiries up 15% compared to last year and a 7.4% growth in the number of sales agreed. Put that together with a 2.3% increase in property prices (the highest since January 2015) and 2020 is looking rosy.
