Buyers at Highest Level for 6 Years

Number of potential house buyers at highest level for six years
The number of people looking to move home is at its highest level for six years according to Loc8 Estate Agents.
New figures show the number of prospective buyers registering their interest during the final 6 months of 2103 was higher than at any time since 2007.
Total potential buyer levels last month rose 11% on the same time last year. They were also up 13% on the same time five years ago. The highest number of potential buyers registered by Loc8 was at the height of the property boom. However we are now registering more buyers month on month in the latter half of 2013 and now January 2014 than in 2008.
This news comes as Loc8 invests in its Branch Network with the Opening of an office in Ormskirk. This comes as part of a drive to re-affirm its position as ‘the independent estate agent of choice’ in North Liverpool for people looking to buy, sell, let or rent.
Kevin Scott, Managing Director of Loc8 Estate and Lettings Agents said: “The market showed real signs of a big upturn in activity towards the end of 2013 and has picked up where it left off at the start of 2014. Traditionally buyers wait until the spring to register but we have found that both buyers and sellers have accepted house prices aren’t going to return to former levels over the short to medium term and have therefore decided not to delay moving any longer.”
This is also reflected in the number of new properties valued by Loc8 last month, which was up 11% on the same time last year.
Added Kevin: “Whilst you can’t predict what is going to happen over the remainder of the year, these figures certainly provide some encouragement to those people looking to move, and we would urge those that haven’t already, to contact their local branch and arrange a full market appraisal of their property. With so many people looking to move, the opportunity to sell has not been so strong in many years.”
Kevin stated that external factors have contributed greatly to the return of the property market adding: “With the Help to Buy scheme, general improvement in the UK economy and better Mortgage Market conditions the environment for moving house has not been this good in a long time.”
