Olympian ef­forts needed for sale

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

NEW sell­ers out­num­ber suc­cess­ful buy­ers by an av­er­age of nearly two to one, ac­cord­ing to Right­move.

Those com­ing to mar­ket in June dropped their ask­ing prices by an av­er­age of £4,138 (-1.7 per cent)

Miles Ship­side, of Right­move, says: “Those keen to sell have the chal­leng­ing con­flu­ence of mis­er­able view­ing weather, the con­tin­u­ing credit-crunch plus a sport­ing dis­trac­tion of Olympic pro­por­tions.

“Those who have been on the mar­ket for many months might con­sider the prospects of achiev­ing a sale to be some­what of an Olympian chal­lenge given that ac­tual sales com­ple­tions are just half what they were five years ago.”
