Sales Fall Through 2021

Published: 02/07/2021



Nearly half of buyers are still likely to benefit from 0% taxation on their main residence from the 1st July when the Stamp Duty and Land Transaction Tax Holiday price thresholds fall to £250,000 in England and £180,000 in Wales.



Over the past year, 47% of all homes in England sold for below £250,000. Excluding London, the proportion increases to 52%. In Wales over half of all buyers will still pay 0% tax.



In northern regions, where property price growth is currently strongest, over 70% of sales fall below the £250,000 threshold; in London just one in 20. First-time buyers in England will still benefit from tax relief on sales up to £300,000.



Although many expected the housing market to be quieter during the summer months as restrictions ease, demand across the housing market remains high.
