Our quick round-up of the local property scene . . .

Local property update

October has turned out to be very busy as everyone returned from summer holidays and the 'Autumn market' began in earnest. There's been plenty of new property for sale across all of our offices, and lots of interest from buyers too. It seems that all areas of the city are hot spots this month! sorry we can't be more specific.

Lettings is ever busy, all of our offices have waiting tenants, especially professional couples & families, looking for quality homes to rent.

Who's saying what?

The latest figures are in from Halifax revealing that over between August and October house prices were 2.3% higher than in the previous three months (May-July). This is the fastest price growth, on this measure, since January. According to the lender, prices in the three months to October were 4.5% higher than in the same three months a year earlier. The annual rate in October is higher than in September (4.0%) and at its highest growth rate since February.
