Land Registry sales data for April 2021

Another month, another drop of property data. And another month showing a big increase in property prices. You can find the data here. Whether intentional or not, the Stamp Duty holiday has caused a house price boom.

Land Registry data for March 2021

I’ve uploaded the latest house price data from the Land Registry to my website. It seems the Stamp Duty holiday, put in place to save the housing market during the pandemic, has actually caused something of a house price boom. Time will tell what happens at the end of the holiday.

House price data for February 2021

I’ve uploaded the latest house price data for England and Wales from the Land Registry to my website. We’re still in the middle of a pandemic but house prices continue to defy gravity, almost certainly due to the stamp duty holiday. That is due to end in June so we’ll see what happens after that

Land Registry property data for December 2020

I’ve uploaded the latest property data for England and Wales to my website. I’ve also made some changes to the charts so they hopefully give a clearer picture of trends in sales and prices. I think the most striking thing I see is that the number of sales over the last year have dropped to levels last seen in the days after the global financial crash. But unlike those days, this hasn’t had the same effect on prices which have continued to rise. I guess that’s down to the removal of stamp duty, so it will be interesting to see what happens when that ends.
