The boom bandwagon

I’m usually loathe to jump on the bandwagon of reports about booming markets and unprecedented demand, but right now it’s hard to ignore, so here’s my take on it. Firstly, let me say that I do appreciate the confidence that comes from positive press.  The impact of positivity on property prices is as powerful as this sentence is problematic to read out loud!  The fear of missing out is very real and across all our offices we are already seeing increased activity across the market in 2021.
