Strongest housing markets across the Southern Home Counties  

Property prices across South East England were 2.1% higher year-on-year as the housing market reopened in June. Waverley is currently the strongest performer in the area. Activity across the market has been brisk; nationally the average time taken to sell a property fell to 53 days in August, down from 62 days in August 2019. Sensible pricing remains crucial, as correctly priced properties are nearly twice as likely to be sold ‘subject to contract’ within four months of listing than those that have had their asking price reduced. Homes in South East England are selling, on average, 12 days quicker than a year ago.
