Statistics from the Land Registry are beginning to indicate that nationally house prices may be stabilising after an acute period of growth. The data from March 2014 shows that average prices were 5.6% above prices in March 2013, showing healthy year-on-year growth.

MackenzieSmith_MPA_Apr14Confidence in property remains high and demand is showing no sign of slowing down, particularly in the south east where prices are robust.

Throughout our branch network we are feeling the pressure of demand from people moving locally as well as those relocating from London and other areas; this is compounded by a high level of first time buyers entering the market too as interest rates remain low and Help to Buy plays its part.

Activity has been trickling up the housing ladder, after initiatives to get it going from the ground up, so there has been more movement in the mid sector of the housing market, and some new homes built, but not enough to fully alleviate the squeeze on supply so pressure remains on values to increase.

If you would like to speak to your local property expert about the property market and property values in your area, as each area has its own nuances and characteristics, we would be more than happy to advise you of market conditions or of the value of your property.
