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.
