The ongoing Brexit delays continue to leave the property industry puzzled as to what’s around the corner. Where possible, some are stalling their decision-making until there is at least some clarity with regards to our future relationship with the European Union and what it means for the economy. Others are taking a ‘business as usual’ approach and seeing the quiet times to explore what opportunities may exist out there.
As the exit process is stretched out further, industry and much of the general public have almost got to the point of just wanting a fixed agreement playbook’ unencumbered by a lack of clarity that has characterised much of period since the referendum vote.
If you’re bored of the Brexit debate and want to geek out a little, take the time to have a look at the Property Solvers Market Insights tool which shows:
- How quickly houses are selling in any postcode area of the UK;
- The average difference between the asking prices and the sold values of properties in any given postcode (using data from Rightmove and HM Land Registry).
