Con­fi­dence and prices up in re­gion

Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

HOUSE prices in York­shire jumped again last month as rock­et­ing in­ter­est from would-be buy­ers dwarfed the amount of prop­er­ties com­ing onto the mar­ket, ac­cord­ing to the Oc­to­ber’s RICS (Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors) Res­i­den­tial Mar­ket Sur­vey.

A net bal­ance of 41 per cent more sur­vey­ors in the re­gion re­ported ris­ing house prices.

This is the high­est read­ing since March 2004.

Alex J Mc­Neil, of Bram­leys prop­erty agents, says: “De­spite a sea­sonal slow­down we’re now see­ing the great­est level of con­fi­dence in the hous­ing mar­ket since 2007, with sales vol­umes and po­ten­tial val­ues set to in­crease in 2014.”
