IS THE PROPERTY MARKET ‘BOUNCE’ REAL?

Following the general election there were predictions by many agents of a property market “bounce” – so, as we exit the EU, is there any evidence these predictions were accurate? And what does the future hold? Well, here at Wilkinson Grant & Co we have experienced our busiest January since 2015, with record sales and exceptionally high levels of enquiries and viewings.

With a vast number of estate agents closing for 12 days from "Builders Friday" until after New Year's Day, many sellers will undoubtedly lose-out (particularly those who are selling to secu ...
