News & Legislation GPEA 24th June 2021

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

Agents report the sales to stock ratio across the South East is at its highest level since spring 2016 (RICS). At 3.8%, the annual rate of housing stock turnover across the South East Home Counties, Kent and East Sussex is above the UK average. Levels currently exceed 4% in the most active markets.

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 the South East is substantially stronger than the 1.9% recorded this time a year ago (UKHPI). Double-digit annual price growth is evident in seven local areas in the South East Home Counties, Kent and East Sussex.

A seller’s market

Market activity is fast-paced. According to Rightmove, the average time taken to sell a property in the South East is 47 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.
