FOLLOWING close on the heels of the news that Britain has climbed out of recession, there are more good tidings for those looking for signs of increased confidence in the property market.
The latest report by Rightmove says that search activity on its website is up by 20 per cent and enquiries up by 11 per cent on the same time last year.
Amy Turner, of Shipways in Rugby, said: “These figures reflect the increase in activity that we have seen in our branch.
“November is traditionally a quieter month as people put off looking for a new home until after Christmas, but that hasn’t happened this year. On the contrary we still have many more prospective buyers than properties available to meet their needs.”
Whilst the discrepancy between supply and demand means that many sales are being achieved, correct pricing is still crucial.
“In today’s economic climate buyers are not prepared to pay over the odds so it is absolutely imperative that properties are competitively priced, well presented and pro-actively marketed,” continues Amy.
“We are urging anyone thinking of selling to get in touch with us now to take advantage of this increased buyer activity in the housing market.”
