Humberts Records Record August

Second Home Hotspots

Our highest number of exchanges for five years

Humberts, August 2016

We're extremely pleased to announce a record breaking sales month in August. Across our branch network which reaches from Truro in the South to York in the North (excluding London) there were 41 per cent more offers when compared with August 2015 – in addition, the company reported the highest number of exchanges for five years.

Ian Westerling Managing Director of Humberts says: “In the immediate weeks following Brexit there was a feeling of uncertainty in the property market, however for those ‘must movers’ business continued as usual.  The current feeling is that in the ‘shires’ there is an energy which just isn’t apparent in the Capital. Owner occupiers rather than pure investors are continuing to buy and sell with an exciting momentum – the fact remains that ‘domestic’ market is still very much alive and kicking.”

Nick Evans, Head of Residential says: “In the early summer months and the ‘pause’ which surrounded the Brexit decision we were left with pent up demand and a lack of stock. The market is now moving at a healthy pace and the effects are spilling over into September. Our message is to strike whilst the iron is hot and capitalise on the current buzz as we head into the final quarter of 2016.”
