Rise in num­ber of house­hunters

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE num­ber of house­hunters in­creased last month, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents.

Es­tate agency branches re­ported an av­er­age in­crease in reg­is­tered would-be buy­ers ris­ing from an av­er­age 218 in Oc­to­ber to 241 in Novem­ber.

The num­ber of sales per branch re­mained at seven in Novem­ber.

How­ever, fig­ures for last month show that the num­ber of peo­ple reg­is­ter­ing to sell a prop­erty dropped.

The most likely rea­sons for this are that the mar­ket is ap­proach­ing the tra­di­tional and ex­pected win­ter slow­down, though it is thought that some sell­ers are wait­ing in the hope that prices will rise in Spring.
