What Is Actually Happening In The UK Housing Market?

Forget what the doom mongers and clickbait merchants are saying about the UK property market. See what is really happening in the sector.

From the number of properties listed, what sort of properties are selling, the level of fall throughs, price reductions in the UK, this week’s video and information contained in it, will give you tools to give the best advice for your vendors and buyers and keep those sales together.

The video also looks at the different UK regional housing markets and gives advice on what you can do to ensure you get the right stock, at the right price, and keep your sales pipelines full.

The weekly ‘UK Property Market Stat Show’ is presented by Chris Watkin and he is joined by this week’s special guest, Bryan Mansell from Gazeal. Both of them love property stats and more importantly what they mean for estate and letting agents.

They look at, and comment on, some interesting stats and graphs – see below – reflecting on the latest trends in the UK and Regional housing market.

  • 21,748 properties sold (stc) last week in the UK (the highest in 2023)
