Ten per cent more properties put up for sale last month

The number of homes put up for sale last month rose by more than ten per cent, according to research from haart.

It revealed a 10.1 per cent increase on April, while the number of for sale signs appearing was 3.9 per cent higher than at the same point last year.

Russell Jervis, managing director of haart, said that the UK property market was continuing to show "remarkable resilience" despite a challenging economic environment.

"Realistic pricing from sellers and a sense of optimism among buyers in the run up to the Diamond Jubilee celebrations has combined to ensure that the strong start to 2012 enjoyed by haart looks set to continue well into the year," he added.

PrimeLocation.com recently revealed that Surrey was home to the UK's most expensive property, with the county's housing stock valued at £287 billion.

Despite this, haart said that there was now more variation in terms of the type of property coming on to the market, as well as the location of these homes.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801382463-ADNFCR
