6% surge in sale market.

A SUDDEN surge in the number of homes for sale in recent weeks could create a buyers' market after the General Election.

The latest monthly survey from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors says the average stock of homes on its members' books rose by 6% during March, while the number of sales slipped slightly, by 2.8% for each surveyor.

However, as more homes go on sale, buyers have greater bargaining power - they can negotiate with various vendors and find out who is most desperate for an offer.
