Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Real estate conditions are expected to improve significantly for industry operators
  • Stronger nonresidential construction has helped offset recent residential difficulties
  • Strong growth in home sales and starts will cause industry revenue to increase
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Conveyancing Services industry has suffered tremendously due to the credit crisis. The rapid decline of the housing market during the recession caused industry revenue to fall dramatically through to 2011. The industry returned to growth in 2012 and is expected to consistently grow over the next five years, following a dip in 2014, as higher volumes of existing home sales and rising housing starts boost industry performance. In the five years to 2020, the continued recovery of the US real estate property market will be the key driving factor for revenue growth. Furthermore, the house price index is expected to rise and add further value to sales in the real estate market.
