The Summer of 2018 has undoubtedly been memorable. England has reveled in the strongest performance at the World Cup since 1966 alongside enjoying (or perhaps suffering?) its longest and hottest summer on record.
While Brits have been off enjoying the warm weather, thoughts of property purchases have taken a back seat for many homeowners and house hunters. However as the return to work and back to school routines are quickly approaching, housing market history suggests that the property market could see a very busy autumn.
History suggests that an autumn following the driest, sunniest and warmest summers have seen more property sales on average.
Waterfords Property Experts and our clever Property Market Analysts at Dataloft have looked into figures in 1995, 1996, 2003, 2006 and 2013 and discovered that during the autumn after these sizzling summers, sales rates picked up by 1.8% on average!*
