Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents (NAEA) mar­ket re­port for July showed a sharp in­crease in the num­ber of house-hunters reg­is­ter­ing at its branches across the UK. On av­er­age agents re­ported 299 peo­ple on their books for the month, up from 263 in June and the high­est fig­ure in over two years (May 2009; 299). Sup­ply lev­els across the coun­try de­creased slightly with NAEA agents re­port­ing 70 prop­er­ties avail­able per branch, down from 74 in June. This is still higher than year-on-year fig­ures where in July 2010, only 68 were recorded.

As is usual for the time of year, sales dropped slightly from an av­er­age of nine per branch to seven.
