Market Update

Despite the many troubles of the housing market over the last few years, the desire to buy remains as strong as ever in the UK. First there was a survey from the Building Societies Association which found that 59% of us would buy immediately or within the next 12 months if the deposit was already sorted out.

And now the National Association of Estate Agents has reported a surge in new enquiries, with almost two-thirds (59%) of member agencies reporting that the number of interested house-hunters registering with them at the start of January was higher than usual for this time of year.
