With the latest UK national lockdown upon us, how has the housing market been affected?
Well, extremely busy since it first re-opened again in the middle of 2020, and this increased demand for property has continued into the first few days of 2021.
For sites such as Rightmove, Monday 4th January was their busiest day since early September with over six million visits. An increase of 30% compared with the start of 2020 is evidence of the demand to move home.
The government’s latest official guidance says you can still carry out activities related to buying, selling, letting or renting a residential property as legitimate reasons to leave home.
