The latest figures from Rightmove show that the prices of properties coming onto the market have dropped by 1.5 per cent and despite market headwinds, the number of agreed sales is only 2.1 per cent down on December 2017.
You might not think that there would be too many people looking to buy at this time of year but the Rightmove research suggests otherwise – so if you do find your perfect home, you might want to move fast in case it gets snapped up.
Apparently, traffic on the site typically triples between Christmas Day and new year, so you might well want to book in a property viewing if you do find a home you’re interested in.
Commenting on the findings, property expert Miles Shipside said: “With stretched affordability limiting some people’s ability to buy for the first time or trade up, a modest lowering of property prices combined with an increase in wage growth could help more of them to move and thus increase transaction numbers.”
