UK average house prices riding high.

UK house prices fell by £4,935 in April 2021 following a rush of activity to to complete their house purchases before the initial scheduled end to the Stamp Duty Holiday on 31 March 2021. The prices achieved in April reflect in our view prices that were finalised when purchasers though they would be missing the stamp duty holiday deadline and therefore prices softened a little. We expect that following the extension of the stamp duty holiday the house price data for next month will show an increase in house prices. .

In this article we look at the house price performance of each region across England and Wales.
