Post-election blues? It’s business as usual for premium property developer Antler Homes

27th June 2017

Certain areas of the UK’s property market have been performing extremely well, however, any period of political uncertainty tends to halt activity in the housing market. The announcement of a snap general election in June came as a surprise to many, and as we enter what is usually peak summer activity, the UK property market is braced for a turbulent time.

However, ahead of the last general election in 2015, the UK’s average property price continued to rise steadily each month at around the same level as in 2014 and 2016, and many property experts predict 2017 to follow suit.

Indeed, Antler Homes, premium property developer throughout the South East of England have reported its business as usual for them as from May to June with Mandy Soames, Sales and Marketing Director at Antler Homes commenting:

“It was noticeable a few weeks prior to the election taking place that there were buyers that put things on hold until the election, but once that was all over, it was business as usual with reservations being taken on current developments, and more interest in our assisted move scheme for those that had not yet sold their own properties. The weekend after the election we held a preview event for one of our new developments and had a fantastic turnout which resulted in reservations being secured.”
