Property activity slump across the UK in 2019

The latest data from the Agency Express Property Activity Index has revealed an unseasonal slump across the UK property. National figures show new listings at 0.1% while figures for properties ‘Sold’ sat at -2.6%.

East Anglia sat at the top of this months leader board, closely followed by Central England.

The largest declines were recorded in the east midlands with figures first time in September since 2014.

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

During September we typically see a spike in property activity following the summer holiday slump. This year however the index has shown a much slower moving market compared to 12 months previous. Moving forwards, based on the seasonal trends we would expect a pickup in activity in October then a slowdown towards the Christmas period. As we move in to these months it will be interesting to see how the year on year comparisons fair.
