Mar­ket ac­tiv­ity set to im­prove

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

HOUSE prices started the year un­changed fol­low­ing monthly price falls over the sec­ond half of 2012, ac­cord­ing to prop­erty mar­ket an­a­lysts Home­track.

Although new buyer reg­is­tra­tions and prop­erty list­ings were down in Jan­uary, they are ex­pected to re­bound this month.

Richard Don­nell of Home­track says: “The sur­vey re­sults show a greater sense of re­al­ism over pric­ing by sellers which is es­sen­tial to sup­port sales.

“Com­pared to this time last year, the per­cent­age of ask­ing price achieved in­di­ca­tor is up across all re­gions.

“We ex­pect mar­ket ac­tiv­ity will post a sea­sonal im­prove­ment in the coming months but pric­ing lev­els are set to re­main broadly sta­ble.”
