Head of eXp UK Adam Day said: "Recent headlines may have been dominated by the ‘worst market performance in 12 years’, but a topline view of market health simply doesn’t paint an accurate picture.

"In fact, across many pockets of the property market house prices have increased considerably over the last year, whilst in others, the market has also been building strong momentum in recent months.

"So while the national picture may suggest that the market is on its knees, this couldn’t be further from the truth and in many areas of the UK, there’s never been a better time to sell.

"An understanding of your local market’s performance is vital when it comes to deciding when to sell and how much for, and it’s this understanding that will ensure you secure the very best price for your home.”
