2013 starts off with a bang

2013 kicks off with a bang for Inspire Estate Agents Crawley with a flurry of early activity!

Early signs of the property market have been encouraging, with an increased confidence of sellers being shown by an increase in new property coming to the market.  This activity has been recorded locally by Inspire Estate Agents where Director Matthew Cousins commented, we are only two thirds through the month of January and already Inspire Estate Agents have seen a record number of instructions come to the market for January.  This increase has been experienced by rightmove too,  with the weekly run-rate of new property listings, up 22% on the same period a year ago. While still down 37% on five years ago, before the full impact of the credit-crunch, this is the highest level recorded at the beginning of a new year since 2008.

Rightmove’s traffic in the first two weeks of 2013 was also up by 27% compared to the same period a year ago. Matthew Cousins commented, " the funding for lending initiative by the government is having a major impact with mortgage rates now at record lows coupled with the increase in new properties coming to the market makes it an excellent time to move. If you are thinking of moving and require a free no obligation valuation contact Inspire Estate Agents now on 01293 582335 and we guarantee to offer the best marketing package at affordable fees.
