A robust start to the New Year is expected for the housing market in Yorkshire says our Head of Residential, Tim Waring who is based at Lister Haigh’s Harrogate office.
“I expect the housing market in Yorkshire will remain robust certainly until Easter allowing those thinking of selling to take advantage of the strong market conditions that are currently being driven by limited supply, ” said Tim. “It is too early to tell how the recent increase in base rates will impact. Personally, I think it will be modest particularly when there is so much latent intent from those wishing to move. Witness my own agency booking over 50 viewings on a single property that was launched three weeks before Christmas with many interested parties already in rented accommodation or having nothing to sell to buy.
“This time last year, we were looking at an uncertain market and look what happened. I think 2022 could prove to be another unusual year.”
