The Budget is on the horizon. It is just over two weeks until the Chancellor will go to the dispatch box to deliver the Budget. It is an election year….and that can mean a giveaway….but what could that mean for the housing market. There are lots of rumours regarding possible changes to stamp duty for house purchases. Also, possible help to buy schemes. Even a review of higher stamp duty for buy to let purchases. All will be revealed on 6th March and watch this space for updates!

Congratulations to Louis Sansom Williams who is our Performer of the Month for January! Louis booked a record number of house valuations in January allowing us to meet and give advice to more and more customers.

Viewing levels pick up! We have seen a large increase in the number of house viewings being booked in all offices. As we move out of January and (slowly) towards the spring it is expected that the market will come to life. There can be no doubt that this is happening and although the market is still very price sensitive. we are confident that 2024 will be a huge improvement on 2023! With falling mortgage rates, expected base rate cuts and a budget on the horizon this is the time to list your property to make the most of what the housing market for 2024.

Great for our fantastic town and will help people move around especially when viewing our properties! Will cut the journey time from our Great Yarmouth to Gorleston offices!
