TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The RICS house price balance slumped to -11 last month from -10 in October, marking its lowest reading since September 2012. Meanwhile, the number of people looking for a new home fell again in November, with the net balance down to -21 from -15 in October, its lowest level since September 2017, mostly on the back of Brexit-related uncertainty.
The outlook was equally downbeat, with sales expectations for the coming three months slumping to -23 in November from -6 the month before. This was the most substantial decline in this series since the EU referendum.
