Monday - Our lettings business goes bonkers in September, with more than 100 enquiries most Monday mornings after the weekend’s activity. To maintain our high standards of service we’ve recruited extra help just so we can deal with the sheer volume.

It comes as no surprise as I write this, being a central London estate agent, that the recent Rightmove price index shows a drop in house prices for the fifth month in a row. However slight the drop, it’s the transaction numbers which really tell the story – down by 75,000 compared to June.

Monday - After a weekend of browsing by potential customers, Monday morning is when new enquiries arrive and the quality of these is normally a sign as to how the week is going to go. Although we are in August, the enquiries both on sales and lettings are good, so we all get on with calls and viewings.
