Pos­i­tive signs as buy­ers test mar­ket

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

PROP­ERTY sales are buoy­ant, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors res­i­den­tial mar­ket sur­vey.

Sur­vey­ors in York­shire ex­pect sales to rise over the next three months. They say a key driver is an up­turn in buy­ers test­ing the mar­ket. In­ter­est from would-be buy­ers has now risen for two con­sec­u­tive months, but sup­ply could be an is­sue as there was a fall in the num­ber of homes com­ing on to the mar­ket.

York­shire sur­vey­ors ex­pect house prices in the re­gion to rise and they also ex­pect ten­ant de­mand to rise.

Bruce Collinson of Adair Pax­ton es­tate agents says: “De­spite the long win­ter, we have seen a pos­i­tive start to the first half of the year.”
