Board Services Have Resumed

We are pleased to confirm our return to service as of Monday 11th May onwards.

With a wider understanding now of the relevant health risks, we will be implementing the following guidelines for our operators:

Social distancing measures observed at all times
Hand sanitisers to be carried by all operators and used regularly
No knocking on vendors doors/interacting with vendors unless absolutely necessary
No visiting of branches
Face coverings/masks to be worn where possible
One person per van, unless those people live in the same household

Please ensure your customers are aware that we will be enforcing strict social distancing to protect all involved. We politely request they do not approach our operators, and boards are left in easily accessible locations for collection when required.

Thank you to all our clients for their continued patience during this time.

School's out and sales slow down

The latest data revealed by the Agency Express Property Activity Index has highlighted drop in both new listings ‘For Sale’ and properties ‘Sold’ during July. National figures for properties ‘Sold’ fell by -15.6% as did figures for new listings ‘For Sale’ which fell  by -3.10%.

However the Property Activity Index’s rolling three monthly data show that properties coming on to the market during this time only saw a marginal decline of -0.20% and the number of residential properties achieving a ‘Sold’ status actually increased 2.6%. 

Out of the twelve regions recorded by the Property Activity Index seven reported declines in properties ‘Sold’ and ten recorded a drop in new listings ‘For Sale’.  The largest declines in this month’s Index were recorded by London.  After six consecutive months of robust increases the capital witnessed a sharp drop,  with new listings falling by -51.7% and properties ‘Sold’ falling by -19.4%.

This month’s top performer and only region to record an increase in both new listings and properties ‘Sold’ was the East Midlands.  Bucking the trend and recording their best July since the Index’s records,  new listings ‘For Sale’ rose by +2.60% and properties ‘Sold’ saw and increase of +4.10%.

 Agency Express Comments

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

This month’s figures come as no surprise, we have now entered the summer holiday months and seasonal adjustments are anticipated.  Although this month’s decline seems significant year on year figures are still robust.  In July 2014 we saw a much larger drop where new listings ‘For Sale and ‘Sold’ figures  fell in excess of 20%. As we pick up pace post September we look forward to seeing these figures evening out again.
