Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
