‘Inflection point’ looms for top conveyancers

first_imgLarger players increasingly dominating conveyancing work may need to make ‘wholesale’ business changes to continue growing, according to a search company’s regular analysis of Land Registry data.Search Acumen’s latest market tracker, published today, shows more than 100,000 fewer transactions in the first nine months of this year compared with the equivalent period in 2016 (731,799 this year compared with 832,684 three years ago) – a fall it puts down to the ‘Brexit effect’.Despite this, conveyancing volumes have jumped by more than 10% between the second and third quarters of this year for the top 10 biggest conveyancers. The number of firms processing fewer than 50 transactions a month has fallen by 6% over the past three years while the top 1,000 players now control a record 75.6% of transaction activity.Andy Sommerville, Search Acumen director, comments that the drop in transactions since 2016 is an indicator of the ‘Brexit effect on an already cooling property market’. However, he says a tricky market had made clear how effectively large conveyancing firms are now able to win and retain business while ‘the days of the small, occasional conveyancer are over’.’But big firms have a physical limit to how much more market share they can gain. There’s only so many conveyancers they can hire to execute so many transactions in a month. We’re going to soon reach an inflection point where the top firms can’t grow without wholesale changes to how they do business,’ Sommerville said.To get bigger, larger firms need to think about ‘combining human and digital insights to a greater extent,’ Sommerville suggested. ‘They need to assess how many transactions they can currently process and investigate what they could be doing if they invested in better technology. Too many firms we speak to see technology as a “nice to have”. But it’s more than that now – technology investment is the key to getting ahead in a competitive climate.’last_img read more

I really dont identify the colored peacock with sports at all. I see it and i think Thursday night prime time. I think the Gold Peacock works much better for sports because I see that and think olympics. I tihnk they should use a gold peacock like this:Very sloppy I know but I think that make me think Sports more than the rainbow. Olympics is their biggest event so keep that Olympics branding consistant accross all NBC sports properties and programminh Followers 0 Link to post 5,155 posts sports Posted July 23, 2013 Members All Activity Share this post Share on other sites Posted July 23, 2013 logo Go To Topic Listing Members Link to post Share this post why do i feel like u work for nbc and are doing research for them?

No harm done.IMHO, NBC’s marks are as a rule rather staid and bland. CNBC, MSNBC, NBC Sports, they’re all sort of ‘meh.’ Iconic due to longevity of the peacock, but otherwise virtually no really redeeming qualities about them. acw484 6 posts Share on other sites Members acw484 kevsim1 Followers 0 333 Share this post Recommended Posts 0 Sports Logos Posted July 23, 2013 NBC Sports Logolast_img read more
