Wow! Millions of homes about to come on to the market

Good news, chaps and chapesses.

One in five home owners is planning to move home almost straight away.

Indeed, that is a finding from a survey commissioned by the Nottingham Building Society in April. As we know, if it’s a survey it must be true.

This one found that 20% of a sample of 1,115 adults were planning to move in the next six months – which takes us up to October.

Just think! That equates to millions of lovely new instructions and more new applicants than you could shake a stick at.

Any minute now, we’ll get more of those ‘busiest-ever days’ on Rightmove and Zoopla stories, and Spicerhaart announcing that it is going to take its top-performers on a Christmas world cruise by way of a thank you.

So, stand back and cancel all holidays – especially agents in the east of England where 27% of people are considering moving by October, followed by 26% of people in the south-west and Wales, 24% in Yorkshire and Humberside, and 23% in London and the south-east.

On the other hand … pull the other one.
