Market has a new spring in its step
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.”
