Halifax released there most recent house price figures yesterday and it made interesting and in my opinion calming reading.
House prices were up 1.3% over the last year. A figure below the current overall inflation figure 2.3%.
The last quarter showed an overall fall of 0.4% but bizarrely the last month a rise of 2.2%.
In my opinion we are now overall in a healthy housing market where supply and demand are very even. In East Norfolk & North East Suffolk we are finding that well priced and marketed properties are selling well. However, if you tip the wrong (high) side on price a buyer can usually find another house offering better value.
Certainly a working week in to 2019 we have seem healthy sales levels across our offices. Also an interesting and diverse selection of new properties hitting our books.
All adds up to an exciting 2019!

With Emoov entering administration and Countrywide group shares falling to an all time low one may think that estate agency all round is in the doldrums.
Emoov are one of the large online agents who take an upfront cost from their clients for marketing the properties
Countrywide are the UK’s largest estate agency chain. Locally their brand is Abbotts. They are what is general referred to as a corporate agent.
Aldreds are neither of the above. We are a local independent firm. Owned, run and managed locally through our four branches. Our style of agency is thriving at the moment as clients look to instruct local trusted brands and people rather than national ‘onliners’ or corporate firms.
We continue to thrive, working and supported the people of the area we have been proud to represent since 1857!
If you are looking to sell your property now or in the new year call your local Aldreds branch, email us or contact us via our social media!
