February House Price up 2.1%

Rightmove report a 2.1% in average UK asking prices in February.

The portal makes these key points about the market data -
  • Decades of inadequate provision of homes to satisfy demand are having an increasing effect, with a tight-stock market resulting in a shortage of quality property to trade up to:
  • Average price of property coming to market up by over £5,000 this month (+£5,729/+2.1%), with all regions reporting uplifts
  • Increase in demand for property continues with busiest ever January site traffic on Rightmove
  • 31% increase in housing transactions in last two years in England and Wales, outstripping 11% rise in number of properties coming to market in same period
  • Some agents reporting lowest ever stock of quality property for sale, as lower owner-occupation, buy-to-let investors not selling, and owners’ reluctance to ‘sell before you find’ contribute to a 4% fall in new seller numbers compared to same period in 2014
  • Different tactics required for a successful move in a tight-stock market
