York­shire sales show con­fi­dence

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE num­ber of house sales in York­shire is ris­ing, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est RICS hous­ing mar­ket sur­vey.

Ken Bird, of Ren­ton & Parr, says: “With a strong fin­ish to 2012 and busy Jan­uary, I be­lieve 2013 could be a fresh start for the hous­ing mar­ket with sev­eral pos­i­tive signs that hint at a grow­ing level of con­fi­dence.”

Peter Bolton King, RICS Global Res­i­den­tial Di­rec­tor, adds: “Price falls across the UK have grad­u­ally stemmed in re­cent months and it is in­ter­est­ing to see that the amount of com­pleted trans­ac­tions are on the rise, as con­fi­dence re­turns to the mar­ket­place. It is still very early days but there is some op­ti­mism out there that things could con­tinue to im­prove.”
