Market is on the mend in Yorkshire
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.”
