Agents tell us about their busy summer as Rightmove traffic smashes 2014 records
Traditionally the housing market cools in the summer as the weather heats up and us Brits find our own little bit of paradise on a beach or villa. However, it seems the UK is still turning up in their millions on Rightmove, viewing more property this summer than ever before.
We’ve seen steady traffic on Rightmove over the last couple of months exceeding 1.4billion page views each month throughout the summer. That’s more than we reached during January 2014 which was the busiest month last year.
Here’s what agents have told us about their summer activity.
Francis P Henry – Daniels estate agents
“We’ve seen massive activity this summer, we’ve been surprised by how many people have come to market and we’ve managed to get so many people moving”
Dan Pennington – Century 21 UK
“We’ve had a great summer, bringing on more and more stock each month. We consistently have a “SOLD STC / under offer” ratio of around 30-35% which not only shows that more people are putting their houses on the market but Century 21 Liverpool is selling them as well!”
Melanie Corrie – Corrie and Co
“We have had fabulous sales in all branches – let’s hope it continues!!”
Michelle Wilden, JD Gallagher
“We are having a great Summer. 80 new agreed sales in just 2 months confirms this! However I’ve always said, it’s not what an estate does, it’s how they do it!”
