February Market review of SK6: A drop in sales yet more come to the market.

February has come out strong with listing 6% more properties then the area did last year with 89 new properties coming to the market in comparison to its 81 in 2018. This is re assuring not because it has increased but mainly because it hasn’t decreased.

  • Leaving home is often considered one of the biggest steps into adulthood, however, according to new research by the Office for National Statistics, young people are living at home for longer.
