We would be interested to know if you are experiencing a ‘Boris bounce’. Comparison website NetAnAgent, which allows members of the public to post up their properties and request valuations, says it has seen a quick and definitive upswing since last Friday morning. Managing director Alex Thorpe said: “Since the election we have seen an 8% jump in listings compared against the same days last year and a 48% increase in the ratio of property that have requested a valuation from an agent through the site. “We know from past performance that the ratio of vendors’ properties listed on NetAnAgent.com that then go to request a valuation is a very good indicator of future market confidence. “This points to an incredible jump in seller confidence and possibly a far stronger start to 2020 than many have been predicting.” Meanwhile back on Corbyn Street, residents are reportedly planning to ask for a change of name (they’re wanting to go Corbyn neutral) with property pundit Henry Pryor suggesting that prices in the street within the Labour leader’s own constituency remain rather depressed.
