Oliver Blake, Managing Director of Your Move and Reeds Rains estate agents. said:
“The slowdown in London can now also be seen in the South East and North East. Time will tell if the rest of England and Wales remains resilient, but the increase in January will be seen by many as positive news and an indication of continued demand, And, with the focus on supporting those entering the property market – including the abolishment of stamp duty for first time buyers – we may see more movement in the market which should bring benefits for all.”
