Property Activity Index reveals mixed market for September
The latest data from the Agency Express Property Activity Index has reported an increase in the number of new listings coming on to the UK property market.
National month on month figures show new listings ‘For Sale’ sitting at 2.4% while figure for properties ‘Sold’ fell, at -0.3%.
This months regional hot spots were the South West, London and Central England. The largest declines were made in Scotland with figures for properties ‘Sold’ sitting at -19.20%.
Commenting on the latest index results, Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Agency Express said:
During September we would normally see a spike in activity following the summer holiday slump. While ‘For Sale’ figures in general have remained on trend we haven’t witnessed the same buoyancy in ‘Sold’ figures. As we now move in to the last three months of the year where traditionally we start to see a slower pace across the market, it is unlikely that we will see any major increases in activity.
