NAEA President Gary Smith said: "Since the beginning of the year NAEA members have seen a significant increase in demand. There are clearly plenty of buyers out there.
"Last month the NAEA registered an average of four buyers for every available property.
"However the vast majority of these buyers also become sellers and these up-to-date figures show that as these buyers decide on a property the supply of housing will increase.
"It is another positive indication that the UK housing market is over the worst and the NAEA calls on the Government to further badger banks and building societies to respond to the opportunity to pull the situation around."
