The Housing Market Post Brexit

In our last newsletter, quickly written and circulated immediately after the BREXIT result, we predicted: “in the short term, we at H Tiddy are advising both sellers and buyers that we could have a wave of increased activity over the next few months”.

This has most certainly been the case. Stronger demand, combined with a shortage in housing supply and lower interest rates, has resulted in certain properties entering a competitive bidding situation, with offers and subsequent sales dramatically exceeding the initial guide prices advertised.

The Housing Market After National Election...

Despite the distractions of the National Election, since early January 2015, we at H Tiddy were surprised to find a dramatic increase in activity in all house price ranges. Based on low interest rates and the purchase of property becoming more affordable for many due to the changes in Stamp Duty, during the first few months of this year, a strong number of buyers have felt that now is the right time to buy. This improvement in buyers' confidence resulted in a record month for us in April, when we exchanged on over £5 million pounds worth of property.

The benefits of video tours and digital magazines

Over the last couple of years, there have been rapid increases in video streaming on the internet. H Tiddy Estate Agents and Property Specialists have recognized this trend and are finding more and more property search buyers are preferring to look at moving images and listen to short videos rather than downloading and reading ‘pdf’ documents and sales brochures on their laptops, tablets and android phones.

The Housing Market 2015 - Predictions from Mark Willson

It has been well reported last year that there had been an easing in house price growth since the summer. Equally, latest reports from The Halifax show that national house prices in the three months to November were 0.7% higher than in the preceding three months, therefore, the housing market is starting to become more active again. Annual price growth in 2014 was reported to be 8.2%, which peaked in July at 10.2%.

H TIDDY ARE EXPANDING.

H Tiddy are delighted to announce the arrival of two new highly professional, motivated and experienced estate agents to the existing team.

Jack is a well respected, level headed and affable local lad who was born and educated in the St Austell and Mevagissey areas. Many will recognize the Hunkin name associated within the fishing industry.
