Buckinghamshire is apparently second for the most home seller activity, a year on from when the original lockdown restrictions were lifted.

The country entered the shutdown between March and May 2020, and according to research from the estate agent comparison site, GetAgent.co.uk, Bucks has seen most homeowners sell their property – second behind Birmingham.

GetAgent analysed the number of homes listed for sale across the property market in England and Wales between April 20 and May 12, 2020, the day before lockdown restrictions were eased and the property market was allowed to reopen.

The website then conducted the same analysis between April 29 and May 12, 2021, to see which areas of the market had seen the biggest revival in home seller activity.

The results showed that there are now 946 more homes for sale across Birmingham than there were a year ago.

Buckinghamshire has also seen one of the biggest turnarounds, with 901 more homes listed for sale now compared to when the market reopened.

Leeds (795), Liverpool (749) and Leicester (692) have also seen some of the biggest increases in home seller stock in terms of the sheer number of additional homes for sale.

Founder and CEO of GetAgent.co.uk, Colby Short, commented: “Given the record levels of house price growth in recent months and the huge levels of buyer demand, it’s easy to forget that things looked very different just a year ago.

"With the nation in lockdown, home seller stock levels plummeted and with the market shrouded in Covid uncertainty, the outlook was bleak, to say the least.

"However, the reopening of the market and the addition of a stamp duty holiday has spurred a meteoric return to health.

“This has been seen pretty much across the board, whether it be in the form of a substantial influx in stock volumes across the nation’s larger cities, or simply a more measured increase in smaller towns that actually equates to a notable jump in percentage terms.”
