10:00am Tuesday 8th January 2013 in News
Rising house prices are providing fresh reason for optimism going into 2013, according to Halstead estate agents.
According to Halifax’s latest figures, house prices in neighbouring town, Braintree, have gone from an average selling price of £207,728 in 2011 to £214,174 in 2012 - an increase of 3.1 per cent.
The mortgage lender was unable to provide figures for Halstead due to a “low sample size”, but for the county as a whole the average price climbed by 2.1 per cent.
Kevin Mixture, associate partner at Scott Maddison estate agents, in Halstead High Street, said he felt the town was following the countywide trend.
