Normal Service Resumed

Rightmove has reported its biggest increase in traffic with visits up 30% on last year.

Searches for purchases are up 11% and enquiries about rentals are up 22%. Although the figures are high this is normal behaviour for January!

What normally happens at the start of any year is a surge in searches for properties which is partly driven by people fed up with having been stuck in with their families over Christmas and partly due to people wanting to start a new year with a new ‘life’.

It’s great to see that despite everything people are continuing to behave normally in one area of our lives. That is so reassuring and makes me feel that sooner or later the whole of life will return to normal and it’s fabulous to see that the property market and our human interaction with it – is NORMAL!
