A wet February affects the March property market

After a robust start to 2014 the UK property market slows down as we enter the spring months. National data recorded by the Property Activity Index highlights a drop in the March property market for properties ‘Sold’.

The Bank of England has also reported a drop in mortgage lending, with speculation of it being a result of a prolonged wet winter.

The statement shows validity as national new listings ‘For Sale’ continued to rise for the third consecutive month, up by 6.40% maintaining our confidence in the continued growth of the UK property market.

However figures calculated over a 3 month period still remain robust. All of the 12 regions recorded by the Index continued increases in both properties ‘Sold’ and new listings ‘For Sale’.
