Mar­ket is on the mend in York­shire

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE num­ber of homes sold in York­shire rose dur­ing Septem­ber as the hous­ing mar­ket re­cov­ery con­tin­ues to gather pace, says the Septem­ber RICS (Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors) Res­i­den­tial Mar­ket Sur­vey.

The av­er­age amount of prop­er­ties sold per char­tered sur­veyor in the three months to Septem­ber reached 20. In tan­dem, prices in the re­gion con­tin­ued to grow with 27 per cent more re­spon­dents re­port­ing rises rather than falls. Prices have now steadily in­creased since Easter.

RICS global res­i­den­tial di­rec­tor Peter Bolton King says: “It’s en­cour­ag­ing that the mar­ket is start­ing to im­prove in all parts of the coun­try with more buy­ers look­ing to make a move and more sales go­ing through.”
