The Rightmove House Price Index for February 2010 reveals that average asking prices increased by over £7,000 in the past month. This is the largest monthly increase since April 2007 and represents a year-on-year increase of 6.1%. In London they are showing the highest ever level of asking prices.
Miles Shipside, commercial director of Rightmove comments: "A price jump of over 3% is more comparable to the pre-credit-crunch boom-times. Sellers are setting their sights higher, and some agents are going along with them in order to win scarce instructions. Property for sale remains scarce in popular areas, but new supply to the market has to be priced at what buyers are willing and able to pay. An average increase of over 7,000 pounds may prove to be a bit too spicy for some buyers' tastes, now that economic constraints have forced them to develop a simpler palate."
