Regional Property Market Update Winter 2021: North East, Yorkshire and The Humber

Sales remain brisk as demand continues

The market is busier than in any year since 2007. In the first nine months of 2021, HMRC estimate that more than 1.2 million homes changed hands, 47% higher than the long-term UK average (2010–2019) and just 50,000 fewer than the same period in 2007. On average, there is now only 2.2 months’ worth of stock available in the UK, compared to four months’ stock in 2019 (TwentyCi).

Selby, Harrogate and Ryedale are the most active housing markets in the North East, and Yorkshire and the Humber. The average annual rate of housing stock turnover in the area as a whole is 4.1%.

On the up 

The average price of a property has increased significantly during the past year, many localities experiencing double-digit annual price growth. Agents anticipate price growth will moderate over the coming months to more sustainable levels, with predicted growth of 2.5% in the North East and 3.0% in Yorkshire and the Humber during 2022 (Zoopla). According to Dataloft, the annual increase in the average property price in the North East is £17,500, with the average property price in Yorkshire and the Humber up by £15,000.

Keeping warm 

COP26 focused attention on the environment and energy efficiency. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is needed whenever a property is built, sold, or rented. While 90% of new build properties achieve the highest A or B rating, just 1 in 14 resale properties currently reach that grade, although 60% could with improvements. Upgrading could prove lucrative; resale properties rated A/B currently attract a 13% price premium (based on £psf), compared to those properties with the average D rating1.
