Housing Market Bouyant!

We at Winchester Removals and Storage we receive weekly updates on the housing market, despite Covid – 19 and the terrible shock to the economy the market is strong and appears stable.

This last week, there was a small decline in the number of sales and properties coming onto the market across the UK. With a minor drop – 2% drop of New Instructions and 4% in sales agreed. This isn’t unusual for the time of year as its holiday season, estate agents are traditionally quiet in August so these stats have not triggered our alarm bells. If you’re one of the 37,645 that agreed a sale week commencing the 3rd August we have to ask have you called Winchester Removals and Storage yet? If not, why not give us a call today 01962 860905.
