Premier Estate agent Hamptons International has reported a six per cent increase in properties for sale at the beginning of January when compared with the same time last year. The figures show that vendors are capitalizing on the apparent increase in confidence within the market, particularly in commuter belt areas outside of the Capital.
Marc Goldberg Head of Sales at Hamptons International says:"We've started 2013 with an increased energy and momentum which will stand us in good stead for the first quarter. Plenty of buyers are registering and there is a healthy flow of new properties coming up for sale. Although external economic factors undoubtedly affected the property market in 2012, we are confident that vendors are viewing the New Year as a fresh opportunity to make the most of the heighted levels of motivated buyers."
According to the latest figures, Hamptons International has seen a surge in the number of buyers registering during the first week of January, applicant levels are at their highest over a one week period for a year. This also coincides with Hamptons International registering the highest number of new properties for sale in a week for over six months.
Marc Goldberg continues: "There has been a very positive start
to 2013.With lenders becoming more competitive and flexible, buyers
are likely to find it easier to secure loans this year. As such,
we've seen a significant increase in those looking to buy
particularly in areas within easy reach of the Capital. All eyes
will be on the commuter belt market this year as buyers seek value
