Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

HOUS­ING mar­ket con­fi­dence is in­creas­ingly, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Hal­i­fax Hous­ing Mar­ket Con­fi­dence tracker.

More than one re­spon­dent in three (39 per cent) pre­dicted that house prices na­tion­ally will in­crease over the next year, al­most dou­ble the pro­por­tion who be­lieve house prices will fall (20 per cent).

Lon­don­ers re­main most con­fi­dent while the North East is least pos­i­tive.

Hal­i­fax hous­ing econ­o­mist Martin El­lis says: “There is a sub­stan­tial north-south di­vide to the im­prove­ment in hous­ing con­fi­dence which is re­flec­tive of prop­erty prices in the South cur­rently more re­silient than in the North.”
