  • With Rightmove reporting the highest ever asking price of £286,133, policies to ensure more homes are made available will be key as housing becomes an important election topic
  • The property shortage experienced in many parts of the country has been exacerbated by a 2015 slump in the number of properties being put up for sale and by increased demand, with record spring search activity on Rightmove:
  • Number of new sellers down 4% so far in 2015 compared to 2014
  • March busiest ever month on Rightmove, up almost 20% year-on-year to 115 million
  • The political challenge is most extreme in the south of the country, with the price of property coming to market up by an average of nearly £85,000 (+27.5%) since the last election in May 2010
