Stock levels plummet- property levels across England depreciate up to 12.5%

Estate agent comparison site, GetAgent.co.uk, recently analysed the postcodes that are currently ranking as the nation’s home selling hotspots.

The research revealed a significant drop in the average number of homes listed for sale per estate agency branch across England.

How did the research get conducted?


Recent data from all of the major property listing portals were analysed and this was cross-referenced with the Land Registry.

Proprietary algorithms and input from partner agents were used to discover the locations where sellers are the most active, price selling and price sold.

The average number of properties listed for sale per branch in every postcode this year was analysed. By comparing market conditions in 2021 with the ones in 2022, GetAgent was able to understand exactly how the market has changed.
