Housing Market Sees Demand for Property Buyers Services in North of England Rise, as North South Property Division Widens

September 12, 2012

LONDON, September 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Owing to the current state of the housing market and the increasing divide in house
prices between northern and southern England, QuickBuyers have been experiencing a surge
in business in the North, from people who want to sell their house fast as prices continue
to steadily drop. Owing to perceived values of property not being attainable via the
traditional route of an estate agent and the lengthy waiting times that this can also
entail, many people are now turning to national home buyers to make a quick house sale
[http://www.quickbuyers.co.uk ].

Figures from the Land Registry show an average increase in house prices of 8% across
the board. The annual price change now stands at 0.3%, bringing the average house price in
England and Wales to GBP162,900. From February to May 2011 there was an average of 46,531
sales per month. In the same month a year later the figure was 49,343.

House prices in London have continued to rise by 2.7% in the month, with an overall
annual increase of 6.5%, making the average selling price in London GBP367,785. In the
North West and North East, however, prices have fallen by 1.7% and 2.1% respectively, with
an average house value of GBP109,235 and GBP98,557.

First-time buyers are finding it increasingly difficult to secure mortgages and the
economy as a whole is struggling – as a result, the housing market is currently stagnant.
If you want to sell your home fast [http://www.quickbuyers.co.uk/sell-your-home-fast ],
then a cash-for-property company can provide the solution to help in these difficult
economic times.

Jon Jones, Managing Director of QuickBuyers, said, “We have seen a sharp percentage
rise in the number of customers in the North of England looking to sell their property
quickly. This we think is largely due to the stagnant housing market in the North of the

Jon Jones went on to say, “As a national home buyer
[http://www.quickbuyers.co.uk/national-home-buyers ], we get a geographical picture of the
UK property market and our business performance statistics coincide with the Land
Registry’s, which would suggest that properties in the North are struggling to sell, more
so than elsewhere in the UK.”

More and more people are finding the benefits of using companies like QuickBuyers more
attractive than going down the traditional route of an estate agent, as they can receive a
cash offer for their house in 24 hours and in a variety of circumstances, this option can
be the best for the homeowner.

With the housing market’s future outlook remaining bleak, the UK home owner will
continue to find selling their property testing. Quick House Sales may be a thing of the
past, especially for now in most areas North of Watford.


QuickBuyers, the national property-buying company, have recently undergone an overhaul
of their brand identity. The new rebrand focuses around a new, fresh, content-rich website
that aims to inform customers of the pros and cons of selling a house quickly.
