Is there oversupply in the UK property market?

A number of property surveys in relation to the UK property market have highlighted the fact that the UK market is moving into an "oversupply" situation. When you also take into account that many buyers are now sitting on the sidelines waiting for prices to fall further, the situation could become worse before it gets better. So why have more people decided to sell their property?

There is no doubt that the hard-hitting press headlines regarding the UK economy and a potential double dip recession have upset many people. Just when the vast majority of households in the UK began to see light at the end of the tunnel the UK government stepped in with significant budget cuts and tax increases in the short-term. As a consequence, and bearing in mind that the global economy is beginning to struggle, more people are now looking to sell their property at a lower price than they may have achieved just weeks ago, with buyers now very much in the ascendancy.

Liquidity issues within the UK mortgage market are also causing concern with many first-time buyers effectively priced out of the market due to the need for a significant deposit. Until this situation changes we are likely to see further downward pressure with more and more buyers holding back or pushing for "unrealistic prices".
