Firstly, let’s see how things have been looking week on week. This one’s getting rather long now…
So we see small declines throughout September in properties coming on to the market, but also generally some small increases in the number of sales being agreed still. Volumes of SSTC’s are holding fairly level even with the end of the Stamp Duty holiday in all parts of the UK now.
But how does this look if we compare these to the same weeks in 2019 and 2020 in graph form, I hear you ask:
I feel like I may have reported this before a few times, but new property coming on to the market (For Sale) is still at a lower level that in 2019. But, sales being agreed (SSTC) is still holding at a higher level than in 2019. Obviously, by this time of year, the 2020 market had really kicked off so I don’t see that we’re going to catch those volumes any time soon.
