Regional Property Market Update Summer 2021: Northern Ireland

News & Legislation GPEA 24th June 2021

2021 is set to be one of the busiest sales years in over a decade

Sales are brisk. In the year to March 2021, HMRC estimate 2% more property sales completed than in the previous 12 months, even with the enforced closure of the market in spring 2020. Agents report the sales to stock ratio across Northern Ireland is at a record high (RICS). Across Northern Ireland, the annual rate of housing stock turnover is 3%. The most active markets are currently Lisburn and Castlereagh, and Ards and North Down.

Price growth strengthens

Although new instructions to the market have improved slightly in recent weeks, demand continues to outpace supply, placing sustained pressure on prices. Month-on-month average property prices are rising in all regions of the UK.

Year-on-year price growth across Northern Ireland is substantially stronger than the 3.9% recorded this time a year ago (UKHPI). Annual price growth currently exceeds 8% in Ards and North Down, and Newry, Mourne and Down.

A seller’s market

Market activity is fast-paced. According to Rightmove, the average time taken to sell a property in Northern Ireland is 45 days. The proportion of properties selling within their first week of listing is at a record high (Zoopla) and the average time taken to sell a property in the UK is nearly three weeks quicker than in April 2019 (Rightmove). Lifestyle change continues to drive demand, buyers also aided by the extension of elements of tax relief and the new 95% government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, available on either new or resale properties.
