Regional Property Market Update Autumn 2021: West Midlands and Mid Wales

Price growth strong across all regions
Annual property price growth in the West Midlands and Wales is significantly stronger than a year ago, as the shortage of property to buy continues to support prices. Agents across the West Midlands and Wales report the current sales to stock ratio is at a record high (RICS), with properties selling in just 34 days and 35 days respectively (Rightmove). 
Double-digit property price growth is evident in 24 areas of West Midlands and Mid Wales. Pembrokeshire and Shropshire are currently the strongest performing areas.

Surge in sales 
It is estimated 880,000 property sales took place across the UK in the first six months of 2021, the highest half year total ever recorded and 50% higher than the same period in 2019 (HMRC). It is anticipated sales will top 1.5 million over the course of the year. Buyers have been spurred on by a desire for change and financial savings as a result of taxation ‘holidays’, with over 60% paying no tax on their purchase. 
In the West Midlands and Mid Wales, the most active housing markets over the past year have been in Stratford-on-Avon and Rugby.

Space to be
The search for space continues to drive many buying decisions. As businesses adopt more flexible ways of working, blended working patterns are set to become the norm for many, and personal wellbeing has shot up the agenda. The local environment, gardens, greater internal square footage and a demarcated space to work from home, all continue to be deemed more important property features in a new home.
