Agent reports property boom

A NORTH Somerset estate agent has reported a boom of activity in the local housing market.

Mark Templer and Company has seen more than twice as many newly-listed homes coming on to their books during April than in March.

The rise has also been matched by an increase in new applicants registering to buy a new home.

Mark Templer said: “The bank holidays and the fine weather have naturally helped, but there is clearly an underlying improvement.

“New clients are no longer testing the market - they are serious about selling.

“Both buyers and sellers appear highly motivated. With property pricing more stable than last year, the market is flourishing.”
