Demand exists as buyers still look for homes

The demand for homes in the UK is on the increase, despite the fact there has been no letting up in the financial downturn for most people in the country.

According to Rightmove.co.uk, its website has seen a significant increase of 20 per cent in the number of people who are looking to move to property for sale in Southampton and other regions.
