Key points in this month's report include:

-The housing market performance has started to taper off with approvals and sales down slightly from last month and some economic indicators are not improving as quickly as in recent months

-However, this was expected due to the former Stamp Duty deadline on the horizon

-Positively, prices seem to be holding up - defying expectations

-With the new Stamp Duty extension to 30 June and Mortgage Guarantee Scheme announced by the Chancellor, we are expecting market momentum to pick up again
