Sam Mitchell, CEO of Housesimple.com, comments:

“With the average UK house price over £200,000, it’s hard to believe you can still buy a house for pre-1980 prices. These particular properties won’t appeal to the majority of buyers, but if you’re not afraid to purchase something that needs work, there are some genuine bargains out there waiting to be snapped up.

“Sellers in this market need to price sensibly – if you price it right, there’s a buyer out there. Pent-up buyer demand has been building since early December. Low-interest rates and competitive mortgage deals make it a very attractive market, but low stock levels in many areas have left buyers with limited choice. Those sellers who market in January will have their pick of the buyers.”
