Property Predictions

Interesting predictions have come out this week looking at house value trends over the next couple of years. It’s obviously very worthwhile looking ahead and taking the time to analyse the implications of possible changes in social and economic activity, but at the same time, the last couple of years have been a graphic demonstration that in reality, we can never know what’s around the corner. The expectation is that residential property values will continue to rise throughout 2022 by anything up to 6%. That’s on top of the increase of over 22% we have seen over the last twelve months...

Market Endurance

This week it has been hard to work out what to write about. It feels like it’s just a week, just like any other week, if you know what I mean.

Auction Difference

We deal in numbers every day, but I think this is a number that stands out and deserves to be recognised. Morton currently has an auction clearance rate of 93.94%. The team is on fire. Yes, the market is incredibly strong, but our team isn’t just capitalising on the conditions, we’re challenging norms so we can go beyond expectations. The fact we are prepared to do auctions differently is a case in point.
