A rip roaring start to the Autumn season
this time of year. Not only do I love
Autumn itself, with the cooler temperatures, often still plenty of sunshine,
the leaves are all changing colour on the trees and the light takes on quite a
magical quality whilst there is a distinctive difference to the air that we
is also happening at present is a vast quantity of viewings taking place – in
fact these are unprecedented numbers for September already, we actually did the
same number of viewings in the first half of September as we did for the whole
of last September – that’s quite some doing, especially when you realise how
busy last September was.
this with a high level of valuations, again we completed the same number of
valuations by the middle of the month, as we did for the whole of last
what does this tell us about the market?
Well, undoubtedly people want to move house and many are obviously
looking to do this prior to Christmas (yes, I can mention the ‘C’ word now its
September) but there is a wider trend
going on which seems to me that people are looking for that something
special. Whereas once, they would sell a
house just to move up the property ladder, now people just want to live in a
house they can be proud of and that fits in with their current lifestyle.
