Shortfall in homes for sale leads to record-breaking house price increase

Here at Century Residential, we have witnessed an extraordinary demand for properties for sale, combined with a shortage of homes coming on the market in the last 7 months. According to Rightmove there was a 225,000 shortfall in homes available for sale in the first half of 2021! In the first half of this year 140,000 more sales were agreed than the 2014 to 2019 average; and yet homes available for sale were down 85,000, creating a 225,000 shortfall which has lead to a record-breaking house price increase.

Record-breaking house prices

The shortage of homes for sale across Kent and the increasing demand from buyers has led to record-breaking house prices. The Nationwide house price index reported a 13.4% annual increase in house prices in June!
