2018 will always be remembered as the year where we were divided as a country. No matter which side, Leave or Remain your allegiance is with, we can all agree that the uncertainty about the future is a constant worry in all aspects of our life, whether it be personal or business.
Amidst all this doom and gloom and the serious amount of fear mongering, what effect did this have on the local Cannock property market?
Well, it seems not much. House selling prices rose in Cannock by 3% in 2018. This is an increase of 7% on 2016 when the average house price in Cannock was £167,000.
