Remember September!

7 September 2021

A sense of normality has returned as the children go back to school after the long summer break. Whilst the market remains very strong, one cannot help believe that a sector of the market was hampered during the summer by childcare challenges or simply because they enjoyed a well-earned break somewhere in the UK.

Now that we are in September, stock levels should rise to a healthier number which we very much hope will feed a starved collection of purchasers; stock has been problematic all year, following the huge levels of activity in 2020.

Whether the lack of quality property nationwide is the result of the higher volume of property transactions last year remains to be seen, but the appetite from both local buyers and those leaving our larger cities remains strong and often buyers find themselves competing to secure a house.

Suffolk and Norfolk continue to be identified as ‘hot spots’ by the new breed of buyer looking to distance themselves from the city, working from home more regularly, but not wanting to be too far away should a weekly visit to the office be necessary. As a result should you consider September the month to market your home, we are keen to hear from you.

We think September will be another bumper month, so do get in touch via our ‘contact us’ page or simply go to your local office page and give us a call.
