More sellers are needed, says agent
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.”
