Missed the boat? – more like missed a sinking ship
Property website Rightmove says asking prices rose for the fifth time this year in July. Miles Shipside, commercial director at Rightmove, said: 'There is now clear evidence that there were some fire-sale prices last winter, when a few brave buyers correctly called the bottom of the market. 'In most parts of the country, prices have consistently improved during spring. With growing confidence that weâ€™ve passed the bottom, buyers are more active, although they may discover that many of the best buys have gone,' he goes on.
