Ask an Expert: Nick Wearmouth - Stamp Duty Update

Story posted: 10.07.20

It’s been an exceptionally energetic week in the local market, with many restless buyers and sellers forging on with moving plans even before the Chancellor announced the Stamp Duty holiday, which is now applicable to all main homes below £500,000, offering a substantial saving up to £15,000! So, what was an already frenetic market, has seen an immediate reaction to the announcement and sales agreed activity has more than doubled on Wednesday, hitting a new daily average so far in July.

This week we also have a number of new property listings to showcase, more than ever before, with many appearing for the first time. If any should be of interest to you, please don’t delay to contact us today to book your appointment(s) for the weekend ahead – properties are selling quickly!
