  • The Dataloft Demand Index shows a 21% increase in housing market demand since the start of 2021. More people than ever are using the new year as a chance to think about moving house.
  • According to Rightmove, the number of prospective buyers contacting agents in January is 7% higher than a year earlier and enquiries about a property to rent are 14% higher.
  • Zoopla reported the flow of new supply onto the market in the first 2 weeks of 2021 to be down -12%. An imbalance between demand and supply can put upward pressure on house prices.
