House prices have the under-elevens to thank to help keep the market moving

The latest data from Rightmove shows, the price of property coming to market has risen by 1.2% (+£3,626) this month to a national average of £317,281.

Research shows that home-owners with children under eleven years old are twice as likely as the average person to be moving home, with their typical target property types being three and four bedroom homes.


The Election Effect

Pre-election periods typically cause a pause in activity, but the price growth and strong year-to-date numbers of sales agreed indicate that many may be undeterred, with the strongest sector for price growth appearing to be typical family homes.

This snap election has had less of an effect on the housing market than the previous election in 2015, with the number of sales agreed by estate agents remaining robust.
