Christmas always seems to approach slowly… and then suddenly. As another unpredictable year winds down, our main problem in the housing market is a lack of new stock coming on. Of course that’s often the case at this time of year, but it seems more pronounced this year. Possibly its because many people moved forward their house move into earlier in the year during the stamp duty holiday, or maybe its the new Covid variant giving movers pause for thought till the situation is clearer. We have though been out to see a lot of properties in recent weeks which will come onto the market in the New Year. For now we still remain busy even at the end of 2021. We successfully completed 5 sales last week, – in New Rd, Lock Rd, Buckingham Road, Mornington Walk and Bishops Close. We also exchanged contracts on Friday on another maisonette in Perryfield Way and both our new instructions for the week already have offers on them. So we remain upbeat for a busy time heading into 2022.
