Dial Cot­tage is open to view Satur­day, Septem­ber 14, from 11.30am till 2pm, no ap­point­ment nec­es­sary. THE hous­ing mar­ket in York­shire con­tin­ues to im­prove, say the RICS.

Buyer de­mand re­mains strong and the num­ber of homes sold in the re­gion in­creased last month, ac­cord­ing to the Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors’ Res­i­den­tial Mar­ket Sur­vey.De­spite the hol­i­day sea­son, would-be buy­ers con­tin­ued to re­turn to the mar­ket dur­ing Au­gust, as a net bal­ance of 30 per­cent more sur­vey­ors in the re­gion re­ported in­creases in buyer en­quiries. The num­ber of homes sold also rose.

Tim War­ing, of Knight Frank says: “We’re see­ing an im­prov­ing mar­ket, with in­creas­ing view­ings and sales. How­ever, there is a dan­ger of a dis­con­nect if sell­ers harden their stance on pric­ing.” MORE than one in four home sales in Au­gust went to a first time buyer, ac­cord­ing to lat­est fig­ures from the National As­so­ci­a­tion of Es­tate Agents.

Fig­ures from the NAEA Au­gust Hous­ing Mar­ket Re­port showed en­cour­ag­ing growth with the aver­age num­ber of first timers in­creas­ing from 22 per cent in July to 26 per cent in Au­gust, sug­gest­ing the im­pact of looser lend­ing re­stric­tions and up­take of Help to Buy are be­gin­ning to be felt.

NAEA mem­bers also re­ported an in­crease of nearly a third in the aver­age num­ber of house hunters per branch and a slight rise in aver­age sales. Sup­ply lev­els saw a slight de­crease over the course of the month.

Dial Cot­tage boasts a 12ft sun­dial cre­ated by as­tronomer Wil­liam Wat­son. The four-bed­room prop­erty sits in a third of an acre.
