Good start to year for York agency

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

YORK-BASED ES­TATE agents Ash­tons has re­ported an en­cour­ag­ing start to the year with sales up by 22 per cent on the same pe­riod be­tween Jan­uary and March last year. The num­ber of po­ten­tial buy­ers reg­is­ter­ing with the firm has also risen.

Peter Docwra, joint owner and di­rec­tor of Ash­tons says: “2012 saw a grad­ual in­crease in ac­tiv­ity in the mar­ket com­pared to 2011, and we are de­lighted to report that this trend is con­tin­u­ing with such a pos­i­tive start to 2013. What is most in­ter­est­ing is the in­crease in the num­ber of po­ten­tial buy­ers now feel­ing con­fi­dent enough to take ad­van­tage of the in­creased num­ber of mort­gages avail­able.

“House prices are pre­dicted to re­main quite flat and this is help­ing to en­cour­age in­ter­est.”
