Highest Number Of UK Property Sales In Over A Decade!

Jul 6, 2021 | Blog

Recent data from Rightmove says there were 704,000 property sales going through in June, which is the highest in the last decade.

At the start of the year, this figure stood at 613,000 but with the stamp duty tax holiday frenzy, which ended on June 30th, it’s no surprise that this number has rocketed since then!

And for those looking to buy or sell a property up to £250,000, there’s still time to make potential savings of up to £2,500.

After a recent survey, Rightmove found that the stamp duty holiday is not the only motivator for people wanting to move homes in 2021.


Some of the most common factors that are driving homeowners to think about making a move are relocating to a new area and also upsizing to accommodate a change in their working environment or new lifestyle.

With Bournemouth and Poole’s award-winning sandy beaches, superb transport links, beautiful countryside walks and thriving local businesses and employment opportunities, you can see why it has been named one of the most popular areas in which people are deciding to relocate to.


The latest Rightmove survey suggests that 53% of respondents more interested in selling and buying than ever, meaning that now could be a great time to think about your next property move.
