Halifax released there most recent house price figures yesterday and it made interesting and in my opinion calming reading.
House prices were up 1.3% over the last year. A figure below the current overall inflation figure 2.3%.
The last quarter showed an overall fall of 0.4% but bizarrely the last month a rise of 2.2%.
In my opinion we are now overall in a healthy housing market where supply and demand are very even. In East Norfolk & North East Suffolk we are finding that well priced and marketed properties are selling well. However, if you tip the wrong (high) side on price a buyer can usually find another house offering better value.
Certainly a working week in to 2019 we have seem healthy sales levels across our offices. Also an interesting and diverse selection of new properties hitting our books.
All adds up to an exciting 2019!
