November 2023 Market Report for Nottingham

Twinkling lights are appearing everywhere and there is a chill in the air. Christmas is definitely on its way! We expect there to be a flurry of activity in the coming months as the drop in inflation boosts the mortgage market. Several mortgage lenders have already cut their rates in recent weeks. 

House prices rose in the UK for the third consecutive month. According to the Nationwide House Price Index house prices grew 0.2 per cent between October and November which is an excellent sign that the property market is starting to stabilise and return to normal. 

The Boxing Day Boom is on its way. Last Boxing Day visits to Rightmove rose by 54% compared to the previous week. There were over 51 million visits between Boxing Day and the first working day of the new year. If you would like to make sure that your property is market ready in time to take advantage of this please do get in touch. We’re now booking into the new year and have availability for a couple more clients.

*The Median Time on Market is the number for which half of the values in the sample are higher than it, and half are lower. The median of a list of numbers can be found by arranging all the observations from lowest value to highest value and picking the middle one. If there are an even number of observations, the mean of the two middle values is often used.
