The rise and falls of the UK property market in September
Septembers data from the Agency Express Property Activity has revealed month on month increases across the UK housing market. New listings ‘For Sale’ sat at 3.5% and properties ‘Sold’ at 2.8%. However, looking back over the index’s historical data figures show activity to be greater in September 2015, where new listings sat at 4.5% and properties ‘Sold’ at 6.9%.
Across the rest of the UK eight of the twelve regions recorded by the index reported increases in both ‘For Sale’ and ‘Sold’ properties, with the North East sitting at the top of the leader board.
Commenting on the latest index results, Stephen Watson, Managing Director of Agency Express said:
Throughout September an increase in activity across the UK property market is anticipated. The month on month figures for September are robust, but in contrast to those recorded 12 months previous we have witnessed less growth. As we now move in to the tail end of the year where further seasonal adjustments are expected, it will be interesting to see how the market performs in comparison.
