The National Association of Estate Agents have recorded increasing levels of buyers and sellers entering the market. The supply of property for sale has risen by a fifth according to their latest figures with the number of buyers looking up around 7%. We feel this demonstrates that the early year bounce in the housing market appears to be happening. Indeed our own figures have revealed a rise in sales of 20% across the group so far in January with two trading days to go. However, the housing market, in our opinion, is more balanced with more properties for sale. Keen and correct pricing is essential to attract buyers and offers.
