As the country continues to navigate its way out of the pandemic, it feels for many like a chance for a fresh start.
Moving house has become particularly popular with the attraction of new surroundings and a revived living space.
Rightmove has reported the first half of 2021 being the “busiest ever” for the market, with 140,000 more sales agreed. And this increase in demand is pushing average property prices to a new record high. So, if you’ve been considering relocating, the time really is now, before prices reach their peak.
Properties with four bedrooms or more face the biggest difference with a 39% surge in sales and a 15% fall in new listings compared with 2019, leading to a 6.7 percent price increase.
Sales in the popular three-bed market have soared by 28% counteracted by a 10 per cent drop in numbers, culminating in a price hike of 6.9 per cent.
If you have a house to sell, the shortage in supply, coupled with increasing house prices means now is an ideal time to sell fast for maximum return.
With demand for housing consistent with high levels of activity, even after the June stamp duty deadline, and residential property prices faring better than other investments, all expectations are that this positive trend will continue.
New homes have been snapped up in the rush to find that new 'work life balance' spurred by lockdown living. And of course, the lure of stylish interiors without the hassle of more DIY or expensive renovations, makes new build homes particularly attractive at this time.
So, brand new Lovell Homes are in short supply, however below are a few of our sought after developments with plots still available to make your dream move a reality in 2021. You'll need to be quick, these homes are selling fast.
