Ask­ing prices on the up in York­shire

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

NEW FIG­URES: York­shire ask­ing prices rose 1.7 per cent over the past month and 2.2 per cent year-on-year, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Right­move House Price In­dex. The av­er­age house price is now £177, 702. The Mid­lands prop­erty mar­ket was the UK’s hottest. The av­er­age UK ask­ing price for newly-listed homes in­creased by 1.3 per cent in March but the East and West Mid­lands led the way with rises of 2.1 per cent. This led them to out­strip the South East and Lon­don, where ask­ing prices were up two per cent and 1.4 per cent in the month to mid-March. Right­move says the up­lift is due to a short­age of suit­able prop­erty for sale.
