Out­look op­ti­mistic for sales in re­gion

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE num­ber of houses sold in York­shire reached its high­est level since June 2012, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est RICS hous­ing mar­ket sur­vey.

Sur­vey­ors in the re­gion are cau­tiously op­ti­mistic that this trend will sta­bilise, if not rise, over the coming three months.

David Pank, of Man­ning Stain­ton says: “Last month saw a surge of ac­tiv­ity from both buy­ers and sellers, with lev­els of ac­tiv­ity in­creas­ing con­sid­er­ably com­pared to Fe­bru­ary last year.”

Peter Bolton King, RICS Global Res­i­den­tial Di­rec­tor, adds: “It’s en­cour­ag­ing to see that the hous­ing mar­ket now ap­pears to be pick­ing-up across York­shire de­spite on-go­ing con­cerns about the health of the econ­omy. This may, in part, be down to the avail­abil­ity of mort­gage fi­nance.”
