A national valuations firm has reported a strong rise in activity post-election, with a 23% rise in valuations last month compared with June last year.
Connells Survey & Valuation said it conducted 34% more valuations for home movers than a year ago, 16% more valuations for first-time buyers, and 24% more for buy-to-let investors.
As well as being up on an annual basis, there were also more valuations on a monthly basis – a rise of 51% in the case of home movers and 42% for first-time buyers.
John Bagshaw, director at Connells Survey & Valuation, said: “Britain’s property market is experiencing an early summer bounce, with all areas of demand for valuations showing strong growth.
“Rising optimism is being fuelled by wage inflation and a more tangible sense of economic progress.”
