So, here we go again.

Christmas is a thing of the past and the City has awoken to a New Year.

I think it's fair to say, after the crazy uplift in prices that peaked in Spring 2014, it feels we are now in a period of 'taking a breath' as we all reassess the prices and state of the economy, before deciding whether to dive head first back in with the inevitable result of prices continuing upwards.

so, with that in mind, the Market feels like it is in a state of impasse.. will it go up after the General Election, or will it remain stable and calm for the remainder of the year, whilst we all witness peripheral Towns & Cities such at Brighton & Reading, catching up.

One thing is for sure, the stock levels are higher than we can remember and for that reason alone, there are good deals to be had, as it appears sellers have become motivated and reasonable, something we have not seen for a number of years.

For the right property, activity levels are still high. But it feels sensible out there, so if you are thinking of buying this year, we strongly advise you to focus your energy on the first 6 months of 2015, which could well bear fruit and put you ahead of the race come the Summer.
