Chris Watkin’s special guest this week on the ‘UK Property Market Stats Show’ is Iain White, ex Romans boss.
Unlike the Land Registry, Halifax and Nationwide indexes, which is already three to eight months out of date, this show focusses on real time property market stats from last week (Week ending Sunday, 21st May 2023).
The idea is to provide estate agents – and anybody else with an interest in property – with information regarding what is happening in the housing market – both nationally and regionally U.K.
