  • Transaction Dissatisfaction

    Sales transactions were 26.1% lower than the same month last year, and 9.1% lower than the 2017-2019 (pre-pandemic) July average.
  • Slow and Low

    Sales market leading indicators also point to a slower market, reversing some of the positive signs from last month. The number of properties under offer for the month was 30% lower than a year earlier and new instructions were down 12.4% on the same basis.

  • Get Growing

    Annual rental growth in this month was 9.1%, the highest level in six months. This increase took rents to 28.4% above their 2017-19 (pre-pandemic) average.


    LonRes data for June indicated an annual fall of 23.5% in lets agreed and a 5.3% fall in new instructions, with activity remaining at around half of pre-pandemic levels.* 

    *Rental demand is so strong that a significant proportion of properties are being let without listing, and are therefore not captured in the data.
