Top of the Props: Our pick of the best new homes for sale in Lancashire
According to recent Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) UK Residential Market Surveys, the number of new homes coming to market in the North West has been falling consistently over the past nine months – somewhat contrary to national figures that report a general increase in housebuilding.
Despite the declining supply to the market, sales expectations from RICS members for the next few months rose. Over a third more surveyors in the North West in the February report expected sales to increase, while 20% more surveyors in the region expected prices to rise over the coming months.
