Spring signals the start of a busy period for the housing market
Spring is in the air, which past trends dictate is the strongest time of year to sell your home. As the temperature rises and the mornings get brighter, viewing houses becomes a fun and exciting activity rather than a chore in the cold, dark days of winter. Sellers are taking advantage by listing properties early to benefit from the busy season, as house prices rise as a response to the recently announced Budget 2014. Not only has this already suggested a strong demand for properties in the region, it has also hit markets of all sizes and prices ranges.
Official figures show the average UK house price rose to £254,000 in January, which is up 6.8% since the same time last year. In the South East the average house price grew by 7.1% to £316,000, cementing the desirable traits of our region.
