Residential Property Quarterly Reflections and Insights

The latest quarterly report from the ASPC gives a reassuring picture of local market activity, with the house price index remaining, mostly, in the positive. The change in quarterly price is +1.5%, while the annual change is -0.5%. Taken over five years, the index is marginally positive at +0.4%. While the figures are reassuring, it may well be that our local market is yet to feel the strain of the general economic background and only time will tell whether this will be reflected in the remainder of 2023. Buyers’ wariness over the short term may well affect property sales as they effectively “sit tight” to see what happens with interest rates.
