Foreword

What a different place we are in compared to a year ago. Thank goodness.

The billions of pounds injected into the economy by the government have kept the ship afloat. Indeed the residential property market is positively buoyant. We have seen unprecedented activity in the last six months and a jump in values.

Will this strong residential market continue? If the current lack of stock of houses to sell is anything to go by, prices should not dip following the end of the stamp duty land tax holiday. Very low interest rates remain crucial to the strength of this market.

In agriculture, the prospects for harvest 2021 are good. A badly needed fillip to last year’s awful harvest.

Commercial property is a mixed bag with the High Street taking a real pounding from the online alternative. But there is better news out of town.

With Brexit done and Covid under control, sentiment has recovered markedly. Confidence is all important in all the markets we serve. It is to be hoped that government activity can ensure this continues.

At JHWalter we remain very busy. Thank goodness for that too.
