Commenting on the latest index results, Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Agency Express said:

We typically see figures plateau in February following the January spike, but the latest data from the Property Activity Index has shown a marginally slower moving market compared to 12 months previous. Nevertheless we have seen a resurgence in activity when compared to the back end of last year, which leaves us in good stead for forthcoming months.
