There isn't a day that goes by these days in the Residential Property world where we don't talk about that highly coveted crystal ball! Where this all ends up post Brexit is anyone's guess but this highly insightful piece of research from Savills has given me food for thought. Even if you disagree with that sentiment, much of the content and data in here will feed your appetite to continue the debate.
If I were to bet my life savings on the piece of Savills research that will get more reaction than any other, I would stake it on this – our annual Residential Property Forecasts. To arrive at our final figures, we use large sets of data and economic modelling to unlock future trends. But this work involves a degree of conjecture, too. Our short-term forecasts rely on us accurately predicting what will happen to sentiment. We have some lead indicators of supply and demand to help with this. But 2018 has not been a normal year, and these indicators are arguably more fickle than ever.
