We’re moving into a new decade, and so the last thing that you want is for your home to look dated. Throughout 2019 we have seen some extreme trends in interior design; from the embracing of industrial elements to the resurgence of entirely neutral spaces.

National average asking prices of newly-marketed property rise by 0.7% (+£1,981) this month. This is consistent with the recent norm for this time of year which saw an average 0.6% February uplift over the previous two years. However, as we enter the traditionally more buoyant spring market the average annual rise of 0.2% (+£714) is the most subdued that Rightmove has recorded at this time of year since 2009. As a result, and with average wage growth now running at an annual rate of 3.4%, buyer affordability is improving at the fastest rate against average new seller asking prices since 2011.
