House Auction Prices - Market Cooling

July's figures confirm that the property market is cooling at a national level for residential auction properties even when property demand and supply is matching. Year on year the number of lots are down, but over the quarter, there has been a 7% rise in the number of properties being sold through auction, while the number of deals being down has fallen by 10% on a quarterly basis and therefore the value of property sold has also fallen by 10%.

Interestingly, as with most property markets, there are vast regional differences. The East Midlands for example is flying at auction level with lots up by nearly 30% May to June 2010 vs 2009; the percentage of lots sold is 70% and revenue generated is up by a massive 23%. As Nottingham is a key area for property investors this is likely to be one of the main reasons behind the local versus national growth.
