Colliers International has released its latest Residential Data Shot, featuring up-to-date commentary of the resi market in the UK.
The snapshot reveals that:
* London continues to defy the rest of the UK housing market trends, which point towards weakening house prices and falling sales transaction volumes.
* Vendor asking price expectations continue to be unrealistic in the current market.
* Changes to the REIT regime in the March budget could pave the way for more institutional investors to enter the housing market through multiple and large-scale purchases.
