Property Activity Index shows pre election slow down

The latest data from the Agency Express Property Activity Index shows a slump in the UK property market and we approach the 2015 General Election.

April which is characteristically a consistent and robust month for the property market fell for the first time in three months. Properties ‘Sold’ dropped by -4.9% and new listings ‘For Sale’ by -3.8%.  

Analysing the Property Activity Index’s historical data records show that the last decline made for the month was in fact during the 2010 pre Elections, where properties ‘Sold’ fell by -0.7%.  The trend then continued in to 2011 with ‘Sold’ figures falling again by -3.6% before resuming its normal activity until this month.

Commenting on the latest index results, Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Agency Express said:

This month’s Property Activity Index figures are fascinating. What is usually a robust and active market across the nation, has seemingly halted in anticipation of the upcoming General Election.  As we can see the Index shows that this trend did occur 5 years ago although to a higher degree this year.  It will be interesting to see the result of this year’s General Election and how that is going to impact the UK property market moving forwards.
