Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

PROP­ERTY ask­ing prices in York­shire rose by 0.4 per cent last month, which is lower than the na­tional av­er­age of 0.7 per cent.

Prices rose 0.3 per cent in Jan­uary and by 0.5 per cent in Fe­bru­ary, sug­gest­ing the mar­ket is pick­ing up speed af­ter the tra­di­tional win­ter lull.

Ev­ery re­gion across the coun­try saw in­creases in ask­ing prices. In­creases of 1 per cent or more were seen in Scot­land (1.2 per cent), Lon­don (1.1 per cent) and the West Mid­lands (1 per cent).

Sa­man­tha Baden, prop­erty an­a­lyst at Fin­daProp­erty.com, says: “The hous­ing mar­ket has emerged from its win­ter hi­ber­na­tion and is be­gin­ning to re­cover. All the in­di­ca­tors are point­ing the same way.”
