July 30 (Reuters) - London-focused estate agent Foxtons on Monday posted a pre-tax loss in the first-half of the year, hurt by lower sales in the British capital and on more investments.
Foxtons, which was once a symbol of London’s property boom, reported a loss before tax of 2.5 million pounds ($3.28 million) compared with a profit of 3.8 million pounds, a year earlier.
“Looking ahead the outlook is mixed. Whilst our sales pipeline has recovered to a similar level to the same time last year, the sales market remains very subdued with less visibility on exchanges proceeding,” the company said on Monday.
