Hous­ing mar­ket turns cor­ner

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE hous­ing mar­ket ap­pears to have fi­nally turned a cor­ner, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors re­port.

The num­ber of buy­ers grew in July and a net bal­ance of 67 per cent more char­tered sur­vey­ors in the re­gion re­ported in­creases in de­mand, up from 53 per cent in June. The RICS say the Govern­ment’s help to buy scheme and ris­ing con­fi­dence in the econ­omy helped boost the mar­ket.

Im­proved mar­ket ac­tiv­ity was seen in ev­ery part of the UK as the re­cov­ery, ini­tially fo­cused in the South East, spread to re­gions across the coun­try. The West Mid­lands and the North East ex­pe­ri­enced the big­gest in­creases in buyer ac­tiv­ity in July.
