I have looked over the last five general elections and analysed in detail what happened to the property market on the lead up to and after each one. Some very interesting information came to light.
Of the last five general elections (1997, 2001, 2005, 2010 and 2015), the two elections that weren’t certain were the last two (2010 with the coalition and 2015 with the largely unexpected Tory majority).
The yellow arrows denote the times of the general elections.
What one can read into both graphs is that while an election might help you sell (more transactions taking place), it does not necessarily mean you will sell for more.
So finally, what does this mean for the landlords of the 2,054 private rented properties in Falmouth?
