Autumn greetings

We are delighted to be publishing our Quarterly Market Intelligence report. You can see it in full here

It’s our ‘Autumn’ report. Some may be hanging on to the belief that it’s still Summer; others may complain that it is palpably Winter. Technically, both are correct. Meteorologists use a definition of the seasons based on months, with autumn being September, October and November in the northern hemisphere. However, astronomically, autumn doesn’t officially start until the autumn equinox, the date when night and day are nearly of the same length and the Sun crosses the celestial equator. That date will be 22nd September.
Meanwhile, the Royal Horticultural Society reports that it is an early Autumn – due to the hot and dry Spring, leaves are changing colour a month earlier than usual.

There has been some debate in the Crayson offices about this; but the Autumn Market has officially begun at Crayson and we are hugely busy, bringing a lovely selection of fabulous new properties to the market and dealing with a remarkable number of genuine and keen buyers.

Away from semantics – the autumn report does contain some very interesting information that is not all a ‘Crayson Party Political Broadcast’. Almost 40% of houses on the market in this area have been subject to price reductions. At Crayson (sorry to brag) we have not reduced one price on any of the houses that we have sold all year and all have sold at either Guide Price or above. I am pretty happy with this record! If you would like a hard copy of the report please do ask and we will deliver.

Thanks very much to all of you who have supported us in our first 6 months.

Best Wishes, Nick
