Looking Back and Moving Forward

twentyea are experts who provide market data on the UK home mover market.

They have taken stock on the impact of Covid-19 on the housing market. In short, their analysis shows that the majority of households who had intended to sell then Covid-19 was upon us, refrained from listing their properties, however those already involved in a sale continued and did so in great numbers.

Covid-19 Impact on Housing Sector

Covid-19, hit the housing market significantly:

  • 285,000 new instructions lost

  • 238,000 sales agreed lost

  • 59,000 exchanges lost

Covid Impact on Exchanges

We're focusing our attention on the consequences on exchange levels just before and after lockdown was lifted. The information shared by Twentyea indicates that although there was a significant decline in exchange levels, this did not last that long and consequently the impact was far less than was anticipated. Their expectation is that the volume of exchanges should have been at the level of approximately 365,000 had the pandemic not occurred. The reality, is that exchange levels were at 306,000, equal to a 16% drop for the short duration shown below.
