June must surely be the most unpredictable month of the year. After a very busy May, all the signs suggested June would follow suit - it has after all been one of the two busiest months of the year 3 times out of the last 4.

June 2014 was however not a record breaker.

Maybe World Cup fever was to blame? I for one am glued to it most evenings and the search for a new house has taken a back-seat.

It’s not that June was particularly poor, it was just a bit none descript when we really thought it would be busy. Overall, Lettings were pretty solid, with 2 very good weeks balancing out the 2 slower ones. Enquiries for apartments in the city have increased, but we’re finding that properties slightly outside of core areas are not generating huge amounts of enquiries.

In home sales we had a very successful month, with a record number of valuations and sales agreed. We have however started to notice a small drop in the number of buyer enquires.  Generally speaking, house sales remain strong, but flats are still far slower than we’d like. With school holidays now just around the corner, we would encourage anybody thinking of coming to the market to do so sooner rather than later.

Looking forward, July and August are normally the busiest months of the year, driven mainly by education. Students moving house, Doctors moving hospitals, and families moving during the school holidays all happen during July & August, so we’re battening down the hatches and getting ready for the rush.
