One thought on “Housebuilder half-yearly profits up 10%

  • Demand isn’t outstripping supply on the Barratt estate where I live (renting, thankfully!). Approximately 90 properties, plenty of them still unsold by Barratt. Of those that have sold, maybe 1/3 are back up for sale privately. Most of the other properties are let out, and a few of those are sat empty. One property has been repossessed and is back on the market now for £5k ess than it was originally sold for 2 years ago when it had an “off-plan” discount. My neighbour took their house off the market following 6 months without an offer.
