Bad year for the prediction pundits

It is traditional at this time of year to crystal ball gaze as to what might happen in the property market next year. An activity that can cause considerable embarrassment on the part of the crystal ball gazer! Just think back to the pollsters and pundits attempts to call the Brexit and US presidential votes or indeed the last general election in the UK, which against all the odds put David Cameron back in Number 10, that is until Brexit came along.
Not only did the pollsters and pundits get these political results wrong, but their consequences were also mostly mis-called. What happened afterwards simply did not bear out the pre-election warnings of economic doom and gloom. True, the financial markets went into free fall immediately following the Brexit and USA presidential election results but they bounced back in days, once the reality of the new order both here and in the United States was rationalised. Brexit and Trump are at the beginning of their journeys and much uncertainty remains about outcomes, but pundits and pollsters beware!
Uncertainty is key, to the property market and indeed to any market.
All that can be said from the vantage point of delightful East Suffolk is that IF ‘low’ continues to be the word used to describe unemployment levels, interest rates, inflation and the supply side of the residential property equation across the country, then rationality will overcome uncertainty. If so, the prospects for next year are very good.
Best wishes for a Happy Christmas and watch out for our newsletters next year for the best insights and the best advice on what is happening in our property market - as it happens!
