“The media flew off the handle when it came to the property market last year. There were countless headlines speculating about a property market crash. And the reality? Actually, it wasn’t that bad! Considering the property market battled against high interest rates and a cost-of-living crisis, it managed to continue transacting well. It will be interesting to see what happens in 2024 but we feel quite optimistic about the potential for the coming year.
