Historically sales of houses have been quieter in December than any other time of the year. Purchasers tend to be concentrating on getting those last minute presents and getting prepared for Christmas, rather than searching for their new home!! Estate Agents normally find that everyone winds down towards Christmas and have much more pressing things to deal with.

At Loveitts, however, negotiators are finding that the phones are still ringing, viewings are still being arranged and more importantly that sales are being agreed. Which simply bucks the normal trends during this busy time before Christmas!

Kendall Head, Director, Auctioneer and Residential Valuer said: “So looks like a happy Christmas for many sellers and buyers, getting the best Christmas present they could ask for, a new house!”
