1.3 Million New Buyer Enquires Since the Election

As a new dawn approaches with the UK set to leave the EU this Friday and a Budget planned for March 11th, will the Boris bounce keep bouncing?

The latest property market statistics seems to suggest so…

  • There have been 1.3 million new buyer enquiries in the month since the election (13th December to 15th January), a 15% increase year-on-year according to Rightmove.
  • A 2.3% monthly increase in the price of properties coming to the market was also reported, the biggest monthly surge ever recorded for this time of year.
  • There certainly seems to be more optimism in the market. Provisional figures from the HMRC suggest a 6.8% year-on-year rise in sales volumes in December while house prices across the UK are rising at their strongest level in a year according to the official UK House Price Index.
