The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, some great things have happened this year, but it has been a slog at the same time. Buyer & seller uncertainty is high, and we have jumped from one uncertainty to the other throughout the year.
My hope is that 2020 will be a steady year, the election settles consumer confidence and people feel secure to start planning for the future again. Ironically, an uncertain property market does make for a good time to buy and sell, especially if you are moving up the ladder, but this is always difficult to convince people of.
I have a positive mindset however and therefore my focus is on the good things that have happened this year, which is no specific order are:
- We moved house in January – the day before the huge downfall in snow!
- We have further diversified the business, increasing new income streams.
- Liverpool won the European Cup!
We won’t mention that England lost a World Cup final and just focus on the positive!
Here’s to a great 2020 and thanks to all our customers for their business in 2019.
