It’s well known that estate agents talk the market up when economists are predicting further falls whether UK or Spain. I know an honest agent in the South of England who has been very busy with sales recently and that he has very little coming on the market.
However he is adamant that this is due to the usual Spring surge coupled with the fact that quite a few people in rented have now started buying. He goes on to say that he believes the market will go very quiet again in a couple of months time or so, that prices will fall further, and when unemployment keeps rising this coming Winter will see the market very weak, in fact he mirrors what the economists are saying. Not many agents have the cahones to speak it right as he does, and he is in an affluent area of the UK.
