Optimistic rise in house sales
SALES of homes in the South West are on the up and rising.
During January, chartered surveyors across the region reported a further increase in the number of newly agreed sales, according to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) housing market survey.
Furthermore, prices remained stable during the first month of the year.
RICS spokesman Mike Woodliffe said: "Despite the poor weather in January there are quite encouraging signs; enquires are up and vendors are pricing properties more realistically.

"In general, there are more good news stories than bad around and this will hopefully continue to build confidence for buyers and sellers alike."
Roger Punch, of South West estate agents Stags, said: "While the report is encouraging, there is a real danger of vendors becoming overconfident and complacent of a recovery as the year progresses."
He added: "To be successful in selling it remains vital to be pricing modestly."
The news is good for Gloucestershire Media's Get Moving campaign, which aims to re-instil confidence in the buying and selling of property in the county.
