Rightmove House Price Index was released to the media this morning and gives a national picture of house prices and activity over the past few weeks. For lettings, an insight into what we've seen in the rental market over the last quarter. SALES Plethora of sold boards restricts choice as buyer demand remains strong
Newly-marketed property prices at virtual standstill, up by 0.1% (+£312) as we enter quieter holiday season
Fundamentals remain good mid-year with robust demand, low interest rates and low unemployment:
Sales agreed numbers remain strong year-to-date in 2017, almost identical to 2016
Prospective buyers in many parts of the country are seeing the highest proportion of properties marked as sold than at any time in the last seven years
Even with 7.6% more sellers coming to market this month compared to this time last year, buyer choice is restricted as supply fails to keep pace with strong sales and buyer demand
Stretched buyer affordability acting as a price brake with national average at a modest +2.8%, with buyers very price sensitive and some properties hitting their price ceiling
