So we are less than a month away from the big bad Brexit (unless things have changed again) and the property market has been thriving. With all the concern about what the future holds it seems that local property buyers are quite happy to carry on as usual.
With the Christmas lull well and truly behind us we have seen a significant increase in property coming to the market and an equally impressive increase in sales. This has been mirrored by the national market with reports confirming a 64% increase month on month with regard to newly instructed property.
A ‘life goes on’ attitude seems to have been adopted with both buyers and sellers taking advantage of what can traditionally be a slower start to the year and what many expected to be a pre Brexit limbo.
Whatever happens on 29th March there seems to be encouraging signs that the market is already in full flow for the year and Poole Townsend have been making the most of the early activity. We have instructed the most property across the South Lakes and Furness region and also sold the most property throughout January, holding over a 20% share of all sold property.
