The more 2022 continues, the more I think property prices are going to be extremely dependent on the individual supply and demand for that property at the time it comes up for sale. This is tough for the media to get across to buyers/sellers, but it’s essential for agents in particular to do so. Using the average results from the stats we have seen to date rather than an agent’s local knowledge is essential for buyers to listen to. I’m also not a great fan of the automatic valuations often used to drive leads as when the data is like this, it could end up under-pricing some and overpricing others – and we know how badly that ends for everyone!
