Is it a good time to sell my house?

Right now, it’s a good time to sell a house in the UK. House prices are gradually increasing, but at a lower rate than we've seen historically in many areas.

On top of this, the prospect of Stamp Duty savings has boosted buyer interest (which we measure by monitoring google searches related to house buying). This means there’s lots of competition to secure the best homes.

At the moment it’s taking around 18 weeks for homesellers to reach the ‘sold subject to contract’ stage. This is a bit quicker than normal for this time of year.
