Re­gion’s ask­ing prices rise 1.2pc

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

YORK­SHIRE ask­ing prices are up 1.2 per cent year on year but have been static over the last month, ac­cord­ing to Lon­don prop­erty price rises hit dou­ble fig­ures, up 10.6 per cent.

Doug Shep­hard, of Home., says: “It’s still fairly ‘grim up North’. Just when home prices might have started to re­cover some of their lost ground, we are see­ing an in­flux of sup­ply into th­ese rel­a­tively slug­gish re­gional mar­kets. Good news for buy­ers who will have much more choice, but north­ern ven­dors will con­tinue to strug­gle and prices will most likely con­tinue to stag­nate.”

His view isn’t shared by lo­cal agents, many of whom re­port a five per cent in­crease in house prices in the county.
