Homeowners in the North East of England have seen the highest percentage price rise than the rest of the country.
Average asking prices in the region have risen 3.31%. A sharp contrast to the price rises in London, West Midlands and the North West, that stand at 0.7%, 0.3% and -1.11% respectively. This hike leaves homeowners in the North East hoping to see a rise of £1,000 a month in the value of their homes since January 2018.
Although asking prices do not necessarily mean the property will sell for that value, the rise in valuations certainly mean that the region is becoming a sought after location.
