Today marks the start of an eight week period in which 10% more properties are sold than at any other time of the year. The survey carried out by Purplebricks.com, found that over a quarter of respondents (28%) had in previous years successfully sold properties between the 1st May and 30th June.

In addition to this, the survey has also uncovered that of those who sold their houses previously during this period the majority (67%) sold for asking price or above indicating the fast paced nature of the property market during this time.

With figures this week revealing that 97% of all properties are being sold for the asking price and are on the market for an average of just over three weeks, May and June 2014 are set to be busier than ever before for the property market.

The least popular time period to sell a property is January and February, a time typically seen as when most people will make big changes in their lives, however it seems that making a property change at this time is most definitely not a priority for the majority of UK residents.
