Sales growth feeds public confidence
The RICS UK Housing Market survey reveals more properties are up for sale in Yorkshire and house prices rises are falling slightly. Mark Hunter, a chartered surveyor with Grice & Hunter Estate Agency in South Yorkshire, says: “During March we have experienced a considerable increase in sales.
“The general public has started noticing more sold notices and the perception that the market is improving has a huge positive effect on consumer confidence, which goes a long way to encourage vendor activity.
“Contrary to popular perception, Easter itself is not a busy period as most wish to holiday or rest after a long winter, but we look forward to mid-April onwards.”
