Can you believe it, we are now over three quarters of the way through 2019! We continue to hear the word “Brexit” from the media, politicians and every other news outlet, however the Barnsley housing market appears to be bucking the national trend and showing strong resilience. As you will see from the figures below, new properties to the market were up on the previous quarter and, more importantly, sales were higher too.

Here are the figures in more detail:

Traditionally, the housing market is slower during the summer months in comparison to spring. We are seeing a different picture this year. Each postcode in the area had higher sales and an overall increase of 18% in total sales is extremely positive.
