27th February 2017

As the Government debates the intricacies of Britain leaving the European Union, widely known as u2018Brexitu2019, local estate agents across the UK are experiencing mixed trends with regards to its impact so far.

From the responses received, following a recent survey conducted by Relocation Agent Network amongst its members u2013 including Hunters Estate Agents, there was a relatively even split between agents that have already begun to experience market trends that can be attributed to Brexit (46%), and those that have not (54%).

When looking at regional differences, the survey found that more respondents from the South (67%) and South East (65%) had experienced an impact from Brexit, compared with other regions in the UK. The regions with the least respondents experiencing an impact from Brexit were those in the East Midlands (12.5%) and Yorkshire (14%).

A similar divide emerged when member respondents were asked if they were expecting Brexit to impact their local market in the next six months. 58% anticipated that the UK deciding to leave the EU will have an impact in the first half of the year, with 42% believing it will not.

When it comes to specific trends experienced as a result of Brexit, a quarter of member respondents reported a decrease in sellers entering the market. Whilst a decline in the number of prospective home buyers was cited by respondents as the second most significant trend that may be attributed to Brexit.

In Mid Sussex, weu2019re currently seeing a lot of activity but not as much translating into actions.
