Ap­peal for sellers in bouyant mar­ket

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE hous­ing mar­ket in York is buoy­ant but it’s suf­fer­ing a stock short­age, say Sav­ills.

Thought there are plenty of in­ter­ested buy­ers, sellers are be­ing slower to come for­ward.

Ben Prid­den at Sav­ills York says: “The mar­ket is really pick­ing up af­ter the grim weather we saw ear­lier in the year, with plenty of buy­ers and not enough houses coming onto the mar­ket. We have buy­ers ready and will­ing to pur­chase, yet just not enough stock to sell. Those homes we have sold re­cently have com­manded be­tween 95 to 100 per cent of the ask­ing price.

“Any­one think­ing of sell­ing could ben­e­fit from this buoy­ant mar­ket lo­cally. I think we are see­ing val­ues not seen since 2007, which is ex­tra­or­di­nary.”
