As the sun sets on 2011, this month has been a very surprising one indeed and is very encouraging for the year ahead.
December this year has been the busiest that I have ever experienced in my many years in the property business. A month whereby thumbs are usually twiddled and drying paint gazed at, this year has seen a month come and go where more homes were sold by us than in November, an absolute first. With Christmas and New Year on the minds of the masses, usually the last thing that people spend time on is buying property. But something has changed this time.
Numbers of new properties to market were incredibly buoyant and as I write this with little over 24 hours to go before the fireworks, our new listing levels have matched that of the previous month. Again, unprecedented.
This bodes VERY well for next year for eMoov and really shows that a) the market isn’t all that bad when buyers find well priced property and b) that sellers are increasingly looking for the low priced, best value selling option that we provide.
Can’t WAIT for 2012!
