House sales spring pick-up
9:00am Wednesday 20th March 2013 in Business
House sellers’ asking prices are at the highest they have ever been for the month of March as confidence returns to the market, property search website Rightmove has said. New sellers lifted their asking prices by 1.7 per cent month-on-month to reach £239,710 on average, beating the previous record high for the month which was set in March 2008 by £55. With asking prices also at 1.2 per cent higher than they were a year ago, the spring boost should result in a sales pick-up in 2013, Rightmove said.
