Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

The hous­ing mar­ket ex­pe­ri­enced a post-Bud­get boost in April that saw in­creased num­bers of buy­ers and sell­ers and strong sales, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents.

The av­er­age es­tate agent branch had 62 reg­is­tered sell­ers, build­ing on the 60 reg­is­tered in March. The num­ber of house hunters reg­is­ter­ing to look for prop­erty also in­creased from 274 in March to 277 in April.

The num­ber of sales agreed across the month re­mained at eight. Around 21 per cent of sales were made to first-time buy­ers. Pres­i­dent of the NAEA, Gary Smith, says: “All of the trends re­ported by our mem­bers point to rea­son­ably sunny prospects for the sum­mer hous­ing mar­ket."
