Regional Property Market Update Summer 2021: South West

2021 is set to be one of the busiest sales years in over a decade

Agents report the sales to stock ratio across the South West is at a record high (RICS). At 3.8%, the annual rate of housing stock turnover across Devon and Cornwall is above the UK average. The most active markets are currently the South Hams, East, North and Mid Devon.

Price growth strengthens

Although new instructions to the market have improved slightly in recent weeks, demand continues to outpace supply, placing sustained pressure on prices. Month-on-month average property prices are rising in all regions of the UK. Year-on-year price growth across the South West is substantially stronger than the 2.5% recorded this time a year ago (UKHPI). Double-digit annual price growth is evident in Cornwall, Exeter, South Hams and West Devon.

A seller’s market

Market activity is fast-paced. According to Rightmove, the average time taken to sell a property in the South West is 43 days. The proportion of properties selling within their first week of listing is at a record high (Zoopla) and the average time taken to sell a property in the UK is nearly three weeks quicker than in April 2019 (Rightmove). Lifestyle change continues to drive demand, buyers also aided by the extension of elements of tax relief and the new 95% government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, available on either new or resale properties.
