Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

NA­TIONAL prop­erty con­sul­tant Carter Jonas’s York­shire-based res­i­den­tial team is re­port­ing an en­cour­ag­ing start to 2012 af­ter a num­ber of suc­cess­ful sales.

Ac­tiv­ity lev­els are higher for the first month of 2012 than for the same pe­riod in 2011. View­ings have also in­creased com­pared to last year.

Tony Wright, head of res­i­den­tial at Carter Jonas in York­shire, said: “So far 2012 is look­ing a lot more pos­i­tive that 2011, with more en­quiries, view­ings and sales. Although it is still early days it seems that many peo­ple’s at­ti­tudes have changed and they want to get on with their lives rather than wait around for the prop­erty mar­ket to sta­bilise. Time will tell if this will be a flash in the pan or an on­go­ing trend.”
