Here Comes Peter Rabbit

Recommended Posts

I am going to walk around Stratford Saturday and will see if anyone is in the EAs. Last week there was not a soul in any of them. Just bored, sad faced EAs staring off into space as they waited for closing time to come around. Windows bursting full of new houses on the market and very very few with "Sold" on them.

Halifax closed one of its offices last week in Evesham which may be an indicator. They already had two on the same street which was a little OTT.

I try not to think to much when I have absolutely no reasonable variables with which to judge. If I must think, I think relying on feelings about my current situation to think with is probably the silliest of all forms of looking through a dirty glazed window.

The only clear indication I have is the limited but very clear picture of market sentiment here. Currently evenly split between the 4 responses. NOBODY knows. It is a confused market. There is no clear sentiment. That is the worst form of market. Its a no-brainer - when the collective product of a number of brains is fog, step back and watch for a while.

Every weekend I have a gander in my local EA. Never anyone in there. The other week, it looked like the female EA had brought her kid in for the day, and I caught the 'young' male EA mid yawn.

Poll's neck and neck!

They had two offices and closed one of them.

Definite sign of a crash.

Or, maybe they took another chain over and have closed one of the offices they acquired but no longer need. Hmmmm, tricky one. Wonder which it is.

Hmmmm? I wonder? My knowledge of how EA's operate is not that good. Perhaps you could enlighten me?

No, there were 2 separate Halifax offices and they closed one. Might reflect a "consolidating" market.

I'm very sure we'll see a bounce.

As much as house prices follow an up & down, boom and bust cycle, spring bounce is always there to some extent and I cannot see that changing this year. Even if there were fewer sales, we'd still see a proportionate "jump" in Q2 figures.

All part of the cycle my friends, worry not!
