Twindig Housing Market Index (HMI)
The Twindig Housing Market Index rose by 4.7% to 90.9 this week. This is great news as it marks the highest level of the index since 28 February 2020, which seems like an awfully long time ago. Investor confidence was bolstered by the positive news from the HMRC on housing transactions which showed a continued recovery in the UK housing market and dare we say it, the real prospect that we might celebrate Christmas 2020 with a Brexit Deal. Whilst we don't want to count any chickens (or should that be turkeys...) before they have hatched, the mood music from both Brussels and Downing Street has a can-do feel to it. Time will tell, but perhaps we should live in the moment as we break for Christmas and hope that Goods news for all mankind will be ratified those sitting around the EU negotiating table.
