Man and Van Ealing, London’s leading light removals service, is looking forward to a busy time as house prices rose this May by the greatest amount in six years. Rightmove has published its latest price index showing this month’s average asking price for houses as £227,441, compared to £222,077 in April, a 2.4 per cent rise. Optimists are hoping this increase, the largest since Rightmove began the index in 2003, will signal the end of falling house prices and a move out of recession.

London house prices reflected the national trend rising 2.7 per cent to £397,646. Man and Van Ealing is particularly optimistic with house prices in this borough rising by 2.8 per cent, the greatest amount in London. By Contrast Man and Vans are less optimistic as house prices in this West London borough have actually fallen by 7.8 per cent.

Man and Vans company director Robert Innes isn’t too optimistic regarding these figures; “This increase in house prices could be seen as a positive sign for the housing market but here at Man and Vans we’re remaining cautious. London house prices are still nearly £7,000 lower than May of last year and until prices rise to these similar levels we expect people to stay where they are. Man and Vans are committed to providing the most competitive prices in this time of recession. Those who are looking to move will find Man and Vans their best option.” To view man and vans prices follow this link – man and vans price list.

Righmove’s results seem to support the ideas of the Man and Van’s owner. Just 11,478 new London homes came on to the market over the last month, compared to 33,479 over the same period last year. Prices may be rising but fewer people seem to be cashing in on these prices and are deciding to stay where they are.
