Headlines 

  • The pandemic property surge – Sales agreed for 2020 surpassed 2019 by over 10% fuelled by a combination of monetary policy (low interest rates), a generous fiscal policy (furlough payments and a stamp duty holiday) and a significant change in consumer preferences (rural locations and additional space).
  • The retailers life raft – There are currently over 550,000 property sales agreed, with an estimated value to the economy of homemovers in excess of £12 billion per annum according to Aviva (outside of the transaction value). This value is widely considered to add 3% to GDP per annum.
  • Brexit Impact – So far, we have not seen a discernible impact from the Brexit deal concluded somewhat at the eleventh hour and still not fully understood in terms of its’ housing market impact.
