More sell­ers are needed, says agent

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

HOME buy­ers are out in force and prop­erty sales have leapt for­ward in Jan­uary 2014, ac­cord­ing to es­tate agency Wil­liam H Brown. The agent recorded al­most 30 per cent more buy­ers and one in four more prop­erty sales com­pared to Jan­uary 2013.

“Ac­tiv­ity lev­els across the lo­cal mar­ket are cur­rently very high,” says York­shire area di­rec­tor Jo Whin­cup. “We usu­ally ex­pect to see in­creased in­ter­est from home buy­ers at the be­gin­ning of a New Year, but the hike in sales is un­prece­dented and bodes very well for the strength of the mar­ket in the months ahead.”

“We are very pos­i­tive about what will hap­pen in in 2014,” Jo con­tin­ues. “We now need to see greater con­fi­dence from sell­ers to meet de­mand.”
