Property owners who wish to sell their house have been encouraged to be more proactive amid the market downturn.

According to Rightmove, people who have their home on the market are becoming increasingly disillusioned as the market has ground to a halt.

The organisation said people have lost motivation, which means both the seller and the property itself becomes stale.

Miles Shipside, commercial director for Rightmove, said this represents the "worst of all worlds", as it results no positive and constructive efforts to sell being made.

He commented: "They blame the market, whereas actually they need to be a bit more proactive to sell."

However, Mr Shipside added that those who are not under financial pressure to sell at the moment "will hang around".

Figures from HM Revenue &Customs recently revealed that the number of property sales in Britain fell by 53 per cent in the last year.
