According to the latest Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Residential Market Survey, interest from buyers in the North East has dropped over the last couple of months.
However, agents are optimistic that sales will increase, with 38% of survey respondents expecting to see a rise over the next couple of months, and 19% are expecting price increases between May - July, although at a moderate pace. A lack of homes on agents books looks set to lead to a price increase.
WhatHouse? has put together a selection of new builds from across the North East with a range of prices.
