Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

The num­ber of peo­ple sell­ing their homes rose in March to its high­est level in six months, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents.

The av­er­age num­ber of prop­er­ties for sale per branch in­creased from 56 in Fe­bru­ary to 60 in March. This is the high­est fig­ure since Septem­ber last year.

The ar­rival of spring also brought an in­flux of new house hunters to the mar­ket. In March, 274 peo­ple reg­is­tered per branch, com­pared to 258 in Fe­bru­ary, an in­crease of seven per cent.

Pres­i­dent of the NAEA, Gary Smith, says: “Spring has fi­nally ar­rived and brought with it a much needed boost to the hous­ing mar­ket.”
