Increasing confidence from sellers

22 April 2014

Home owners in the UK that are planning to sell are becoming increasingly confident, research from Halifax has revealed.
In the current economic climate 56% of Brits feel the next 12 months could be a good time to put their property on the market. This is the highest score from Halifax’s quarterly Housing Market Confidence Tracker since April 2011 when it was launched.
The first three months of 2014 have seen growth in housing transactions and this will increase sellers’ optimism for the rest of the year. 
Craig McKinlay, Mortgages Director at Halifax, commented: "The increase in optimism is partly due to stronger house prices and this shift could provide a much needed increase in the supply of properties available for sale during the rest of the year."
