As we hurtle quickly into the summer holidays and the children are breaking up from school, the property market traditionally slows a little after a rush to get completions done before the end of July. One of the minor shifts we have noticed over recent years shows that this slower period is not as slow as it has been. People still put their house on the market during this time and house sales happen.
Nationally, Propertywire reported that mortgage lending in the UK reached £22.1 billion in the month of June which 1.9% higher than May. As sluggish as the market sometimes appears to be, it is indeed moving.
