RICS Survey Overview
The RICS Residential Market Survey for November 2016 (published 7th D 2016) says that there has been “a small increase in new buyer enquiries for the third consecutive month”.
Wales, the North East and London all report a fall in prices, although the inner London Boroughs activity suggests an easing of the downward trajectory of the previous months.
Northern Ireland and the East Midlands saw the largest drop in New Buyer Enquires compared to the previous quarter’s average, whilst Wales, the South East and the South West have each seen significant increases.
Northern Ireland reported by far the largest number of New Vendor Instructions compared to the previous quarter, followed by the South East and again the East Midlands.
