"DECEMBER NEWSLETTER 2012"

With Christmas fast approaching and the 2013 "New Year" festivities beckoning, this is a great chance to reflect upon the events of the year.

The Highland Solicitors Property Centre (HSPC) have released their Monthly Newsletter which shows quick stats on the November property market (as compared with 2011).

We are all aware of the current recession and so will not be too surprised to note that there has been a decrease in the property market, with the average house price in the Highland region seeing a dip of 2% (£168,293 compared with 2011 figure of £171,134).

Towards the summer months trends tend to pick up and whilst this has been true for 2012, we have found the market to remain far from buoyant. We anticipate this was due to the rather poor summer weather and therefore fewer house visits, not to mention the lack of available funds from mortgage lenders and an increase in chain link transactions.

All this seems rather doom and gloom however, there have been positive impacts reported. The number of online property insertions, onto the HSPC website, has increased by 3% (77 compared to 75 in 2011). The number of visitors to the website has seen an increase by 9% with unique visitors from outside the UK increasing by 6%. House sales have also seen an increase in November, albeit by 1 (from 91 in 2011 to 92).
