With a significant number of sales in the pipeline, many hoping to complete before the end of the March SDLT deadline, activity in the market remains brisk. Demand exceeding supply has undoubtedly helped support prices. At 7.6 per cent, UK house price growth is at its strongest since June 2016 and the EU Referendum. The average price of a prime market property now exceeds £1 million, up over 9 per cent year on year. Price growth is evident in all regions, with significant growth recorded in the South East and London.  

The lifestyle changes sought by many in the wake of the pandemic are likely to ensure continued interest in the prime markets of the UK from both domestic, as well as overseas purchasers. Property prices across the prime market are predicted to rise in the region of 4 per cent over the course of 2021.
