Asking prices rise in Yorkshire
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.”
