This is the week of "back to school", of new pencil cases, school uniforms and trips to the barbers. It is also the most popular time to sell for those looking to move before the end of the year.

The past two years have been somewhat unpredictable, we've had a general election, changes in stamp duty bandings, the EU refurendum, and a new Prime Minister. Depending on who you are, these recent events have brought about positive or negaitive news. One thing is for certain, all of the above gives would be buyers an excuse to sit on their hands and to wait and see what everyone else does before deciding whether or not to buy.

It appears now that buyers are ready to come out in force, perhaps this is due to the drop in interest rates to 0.25%, or perhaps those expecting the sky to fall down after the Brexit vote have realised that it's safe to come out of hiding and continue with business as usual.

In the past week we have seen a 466% increase in email enquiries compare to the previous 7 days, and a 75% increase in telephone enquiries specifically relating to properties for sale. All in all a 541% increase in enquiries for our properties in the past 7 days.
