More view­ings bring good cheer

HOUSE view­ing fig­ures for last month show a 48 per cent in­crease in com­par­i­son to the same time last year, in­di­cat­ing that mar­ket mo­men­tum will be sus­tained through De­cem­ber, says Strutt & Parker.

The fes­tive pe­riod is usu­ally a slow time of year for the mar­ket. Many peo­ple take down the “for sale” sign with a view to launch­ing again in the new year and view­ings dry up in the build up to Christ­mas. This year, though, buy­ers and sell­ers have bucked the usual win­ter trend and of­fers are up 34 per cent.

Toby Mil­bank, of the firm’s Har­ro­gate of­fice, says: “Ven­dors are be­ing more creative, us­ing Christ­mas dé­cor and win­ter styles to pro­mote cer­tain aspects of their home.”
