Agent reports "lively" housing market

Wednesday 23 November 2022


Cooper Brouard says the current “house markets remain lively” but prices are expected to level out across the local and open purchase and rental sectors.

The estate agent said vibrant sales and rental markets of 2022 look set to continue into 2023, but it will be at a slightly less frenzied pace.

Cathy Gallienne, Director at Cooper Brouard, said the recent results paint a positive picture.

“A greater choice of property on the Local Market is leading to more viewings and starting to encourage previously hesitant vendors to put their homes on the market. Offers are being accepted and sales are proceeding as the market adjusts to changing conditions.”  

Ms Gallienne said that although the numbers of homes available to buy on the Open Market is limited, particularly at the entry price level, the high volume of applicant enquiries from those looking to relocate in 2023 is also very encouraging.  

She also said demand for rental homes has levelled out and supply is low. The reduction in advertised rental prices reported in recent government statistics reflects landlords’ response to the changing economic landscape, with many not applying full RPI increases to rents, she said.
