The Football Stadium Towns Winning the Premier House Price League

A mere seven weeks after the final games of the 2019-20 season, the Premier League has returned for the 2020-21 season. Last season’s games were severely delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic with most games being played behind closed doors. While it appears there’s still a long road ahead before the football league stadiums are allowed to welcome the team supporters back through their gates, new research has highlighted some clear early winners in a completely different, but related, competition – the football stadium house price league.

Time to scrap stamp duty? New figures add weight to argument

New figures released this morning give weight to calls for the complete scrapping of stamp duty. The data shows there have been 20,238 transactions since the SDLT holiday was launched with a sold value of £6.7 billion.

As many as 85 percent of these transactions have fallen below the £500,000 price threshold and paid no stamp duty thanks to the holiday.

Cost of moving home falls by 40%

The cost of moving home has fallen by almost 40% from 10,911 before the stamp duty holiday came into effect in July to £6,669 after, saving the average homebuyer and seller £4,242 according to reallymoving’s annual Cost of Moving research.
