The Nationwide reported that the average UK house price rose by 5% in September year on year to a record high of £226,129 – with regions in the south of England showing the highest increases. It seems househunters who held off due to the pandemic are now moving and of course the stamp duty holiday that’s in place until 31st March 2021 is playing a part too.

Finally, the Help to Buy scheme that has helped so many buyers at the Park make a more affordable move is changing in 2021 and will also be prompting them to plan a move sooner rather than later. In 2021, the revised scheme will be open to first-time buyers only and regional price caps will be in place – undoubtedly affecting many who are hoping to take advantage of reduced monthly payments on a new home.

Safety first
