Latest news from the web-portal  Rightmove confirm that sellers are now securing a buyer and having an offer accepted within a week than at any point over the past decade, and this is largely thanks to the temporary stamp duty holiday and pent-up demand being released after lockdown.

The government’s new tax break has meant that hundreds of thousands of you are looking to move home before the 31st March deadline next year. Data analysts at Rightmove have found that between 8th July and 31st August, one in seven properties marked as sale agreed by agents did so within a week of being listed on Rightmove, up from one in ten in 2019.  Also, Just under one third (30%) of homes were marked sold subject to contract within the first two weeks of being put up for sale, compared with one in five (21%) in 2019.
