Trans­ac­tion lev­els set to in­crease

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

AC­TIV­ITY in the York­shire hous­ing mar­ket dipped slightly in Au­gust, prob­a­bly due to the bank hol­i­day and the Olympics, says the lat­est RICS UK sur­vey.

In the three months to Au­gust, char­tered sur­vey­ors in the re­gion sold on av­er­age 5.3 per cent of the homes on their books per month.

This is slightly down on the fig­ures re­ported throughout much of 2012. How­ever, there were more po­ten­tial buy­ers

Look­ing ahead, York­shire char­tered sur­vey­ors pre­dict trans­ac­tion lev­els to pick up slightly as au­tumn ap­proaches.

Tim War­ing, of Knight Frank, says: “In­creas­ing re­al­ism on the part of sell­ers is cre­at­ing ac­tiv­ity from buy­ers who are recog­nis­ing value for money.”
