Over the past 24 months, the property industry has gone from strength to strength with house prices increasing drastically, even in the midst of a global pandemic. This is great news for anyone involved in the property market as prices in England overall have nearly reached a 10% increase in 24 months and aside from a minor blip they look like they will continue to grow throughout 2021.

Property price growth has been highest in Wales over the course of 24 months, at 14.61% and is the only one out of 2 regions that have stayed positive at the end of recording the data, this is followed closely by the East of England that is still positive with 0.33% increase in the last month.

The southwest has seen the biggest drop in house prices over the last month with an average reduction of 2.31%, but this could be beneficial though with Cornwall and surrounding areas having very attractive properties that when bought at a lower price could yield great potential returns upon completion of the project.
