Rightmove’s busiest day in history March 2021
Posted on March 12, 2021 by Walton & Allen
3rd March 2021 was the busiest day in Rightmove’s history thanks to budget announcements by Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
Visits to the website surpassed 9 million hits, which is the highest for a single day than ever before. Hits were also 6 per cent higher than visits after the summer budget on 8th July 2020.
It is likely that this increased traffic was due to the extension in stamp duty and the announcement of mortgage help for first time buyers with 5 per cent deposits.
Analysis now states that sellers should bring their home to market by 23rd March 2021 at the very latest to make use of the cuts in stamp duty.
Nottingham house prices still up
Analysis by Hometrack states that Nottingham house prices are up 5.8 per cent in the last 12 months. They also rose by 1 per cent in the last 3 months alone.
