The number of house sales in November was the highest of the year – but failed to boost transactions for the first 11 months of this year to 2010 levels.

There were 85,000 sales in November, according to HMRC – a rise from 79,000 in October and up from 76,000 in November last year.

But in the first 11 months of this year, there were only 787,000 house sales – down from 810,000 in the same period last year.

    Acquire Property Software: 'A New Fefature in APS Lilve Multiple Windows you can have multiple windows open at the same time this save time as you dont have to close each window to open another.'

    I'm almost speechless - or whatever the equivalent is in terms of not being able to think what to write.

    The trully appalling spelling etc. aside - who would be interested in a property software company that uses an 'off the shelf' web site?

    As for having multiple windows open at the same time - well, every developer I know avoids that like the plague.

    True Ray but monthly transactions have been hovering around 75k per month now for three years.

    Tick tock.

    Merry Christmas one and all.

    Sorry I am away from my PlayStation in a tent at St Pauls, I will respond with twaddle, as you would expect, on my return when mummy collects me.

    'only' 787,000 house sales – down from 810,000 in the same period last year......
    Less than 3% drop in transactions in a year of extreem credit restriction and job insecurity etc. etc. Although I am not a fan of averages that does not seem very significan!
    Many other businesses would be very encouraged at such a small reduction in their business?
