REA agrees a further 150 house sales in May

THE Real Estate Alliance Group agreed a further 150 house sales nationwide last month. But enquiry and viewing levels tailed off a little.
While sales agreed matched the previous month, the latest REA Property Barometer for the month of May shows that finalising deals remains a slow process with the figure for contracts signed at 114. REA chief executive Eimer O'Keefe reports that 4,000 enquiries were processed by the 38 group member firms around the country last month -- down five pc. The total number of viewings was down three pc at 1,350.
Ms O'Keefe noted that the level of enquiries are back to March levels, but pointed out that activity traditionally slows during the summer months.
