Regional Property Market Update Autumn 2021: Southern region

Price growth strong across all regions

Annual property price growth in the South East and South West is significantly stronger than a year ago, as the shortage of property to buy continues to support prices. Agents across the South East and South West report the current sales to stock ratio remains high (RICS), with properties selling in just 39 and 32 days respectively (Rightmove). 

Double-digit property price growth is evident in eight areas of Southern England. Eastleigh and Gosport are currently the strongest performing areas.

Surge in sales 

It is estimated 880,000 property sales took place across the UK in the first six months of 2021, the highest half year total ever recorded and 50% higher than the same period in 2019 (HMRC). It is anticipated sales will top 1.5 million over the course of the year. Buyers have been spurred on by a desire for change and financial savings as a result of taxation ‘holidays’, with over 60% paying no tax on their purchase. 

In Southern England, the most active housing markets over the past year have been in Hart, and Basingstoke and Deane.

Space to be

The search for space continues to drive many buying decisions. As businesses adopt more flexible ways of working, blended working patterns are set to become the norm for many, and personal wellbeing has shot up the agenda. The local environment, gardens, greater internal square footage and a demarcated space to work from home, all continue to be deemed more important property features in a new home.

Having gone through Stevens estate agents for renting out a property and also selling a property I cannot recommend them enough. They are very efficient at answering questions and they ensured the sale of my property proceeded as quickly as possible making sure I was always kept up to date.

The landlord service is fantastic too and they maintained the rented out property so I didn’t need to get involved even when problems did arise .

A fantastic , professional team who are always so helpful.

The team were really responsive to queries that we had regarding our purchase. Having dealt with a number of Estate Agents in the past I would rate Stevens as one of the best that we've worked with. Hannah was excellent at keeping us informed throughout.

"

Very thorough service, all queries promptly followed up and some additional small requests for instance dealing with house clearance and cleaning (because the sellers were not local) undertaken without additional charge.

A trouble free transaction, much appreciated.
