HOUSEHUNTERS re­turned in Jan­uary as de­mand fig­ures reached a six-month high, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents (NAEA).

The NAEA mar­ket re­port for Jan­uary showed gains across both sup­ply and de­mand for hous­ing com­pared with De­cem­ber, al­though this re­mains in-line with fig­ures from the same time last year. The num­ber of peo­ple reg­is­ter­ing with es­tate agents to buy prop­erty im­proved from an av­er­age of 227 in De­cem­ber to 252 in Jan­uary, how­ever this is still down on Jan­uary 2010’s fig­ure of 291.

Michael Jones, pres­i­dent of the NAEA, said: “It is en­cour­ag­ing to see ac­tiv­ity lev­els be­gin to in­crease.”
