Buyers Return As Confidence Improves In Housing Market

RICS November 2012 UK Housing Market Survey

Buyer interest grew across the UK last month as confidence in the housing market continued its gradual increase, says the latest RICS housing market survey (11 December 2012).

Enquiries from would-be buyers saw a rise in most parts of the UK last month and have now grown steadily since the end of the summer (net balance +11 percent). Although demand is still at a historically low level, it would appear that those who are in a position to do so are gradually looking to test the market.
