November sees rise in house hunters

The number of people looking to purchase houses for sale in the UK has risen, according to a recent report.

Latest figures from the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) have revealed that the average branch had 241 house hunters registered with them in November 2010.

This is compared with an average of 218 people who confirmed an interest in buying homes with an estate agent the month before.

President of NAEA Michael Jones said that there is "clear evidence of demand" for properties for sale in the UK.

"These are not window-shoppers," he commented. "Our agents are continuing to make sales and it is particularly pleasing to see sales figures remain constant at this time of the year."

Last month, the NAEA launched a new licence to be issued to registered estate agencies, which guarantees consumers that branches have at least one agent who is qualified in residential property sales - a move which could encourage more people to have faith in the work of their realtor to find them a suitable property. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800282157-ADNFCR
