WE’RE BACK and the market has opened with a bang!

Last week the government unexpectedly announced the re-opening of the residential property market, allowing sales and letting agents back to work.

My week started off in a positive way with two young couples both moving in to their first new homes together, all excited but apprehensive for the fo ...
