HOUSE SALES: The housing market in the South West should see a slightly stronger end to the year with transaction levels expected to pick up, says the latest RICS UK housing market survey.

During September, chartered surveyors’ expectations for future sales reached their highest level since August 2011, as a net balance of 36 per cent more respondents in the region predicted transactions to grow during the final three months of the year.

However, house prices in the South West remained unchanged during September, with 30 per cent more surveyors reporting falls rather than rises.
