Property Ladder: Confidence on the up
Despite the economic gloom consumer confidence in the UK property market is on the up, according to a new report.
And the biggest surge is in Northern Ireland, where 54% of home-owners expect house prices to rise over the next six months, up from 41%.
Confidence is up from 57% three months ago and remained the same or was up in all regions of the country — except in London and the East Midlands. The latest findings, revealed by Zoopla.co.uk, have revealed that 59% of home-owners expect the value of property in their area to increase by at least 2.7% within the next 12 months.
