Commenting on the period – 27.06.2020 – 03.07.2020, BriefYourMarket.com’s Chief Commercial Officer, Richard Combellack, said:
“As June 2020 closed, the market remained buoyant.
“Over the past few weeks, there has been a consistent level of stock – in and around the 60,000 mark – coming to market on a weekly basis.
“As we entered July, it was really encouraging to see this trend continuing to climb.
“The positive trend in sales (SSTC) continues too.
“However, the best news from last week is that withdrawals have continued to reduce significantly on a weekly basis.
“Last week’s analysis indicates that withdrawals are at the lowest level in five weeks, with a substantial -83% reduction.
“The fall-through rate continues to remain steady too, settling in and around the 5000 mark for the third week running now.
“All in all, a positive month in very challenging times.”
