Look­ing on the brighter side

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THERE’S a North-South di­vide in house price sen­ti­ment, al­though York­shire is look­ing on the bright side.

The lat­est Knight Frank Markit sur­vey shows that Lon­don re­mains the only re­gion where house­holds felt the value of their home rose over the past month.

Over­all, around 28 per cent of house­holds an­tic­i­pate a rise in the value of their home over the next 12 months, com­pared with 24 per cent ex­pect­ing a de­cline.

Those liv­ing in the North-West re­ported see­ing the deep­est de­clines. The only ex­cep­tions to those ex­pect­ing house price falls in the North were house­holds in York­shire and Scot­land. Knight Frank say the sur­vey sug­gests the hous­ing mar­ket is at its weak­est in six months.
