The average asking price for property in North-East towns and cities such as Durham, Newcastle and Sunderland, has also increased by £2,532 since January and now stands at £152,260.
Ben Greco, Director at Move with Us, said: “The second quarter of this year has been very positive for the North-East. We were expecting asking prices to experience downward pressure as the number of new listings increased in May, however, they remained steady. The amount sellers achieved for their property actually increased and the average number of days to sell improved, which are all indications of an improving market.”
