This spring has seen a rise in sales compared to the same period last year and there have also been an encouraging number of 1st time buyer property sales.  This may be attributable to the slight easing of mortgage lending criteria and to lenders such as Nationwide Building Society beginning to re-engage with the 95% mortgage market

Viewings in April and May have presented sellers with a mixed picture.  Some properties have attracted good numbers of viewers despite the interruptions of the holiday weekends, whilst others have remained steady

A great presentation and attractive selling price remain paramount factors in achieving a successful sale, but the lenders' constraints on mortgage lending remains the dominant factor

Our outlook is that prices are likely to remain at current levels for the time being until the demand - supply equation begins to return to positive territory
