The housing market is "pretty much flatlining" amid growing concerns about Brexit and political uncertainty, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' said in its report for July. Some 69% of property professionals said that sales prices were coming in below asking prices for homes marketed at more than £1m. Meanwhile for properties on the market for up to £500,000, 59% of surveyors reported that sales prices were at least level with asking prices. A net balance of 9% of surveyors reported house prices falling rather than increasing.
