Sellers return to housing market

The UK housing market in February saw a jump in the number of people putting their house up for sale, according to estate agents.

The National Association of Estate Agent’s (NAEA) market report for February shows a year-on-year rise of 25 per cent in the level of available housing stock.

The number of house hunters registering with an agent across the country also rose to 268 reported in February compared with 252 in January per branch – the highest level for seven months.

Sales increased across the property market in February, growing from an average of 6 to 8 per branch month on month, despite continuing consumer concern regarding interest rate rises.
