Cardiff Sales Market Update – Summer 2021

Sales Market Update Summer 2021 - pic of Nathan

At CPS Homes, we've found the Cardiff property market to be incredibly strong this summer, with more activity than we've ever experienced before. Whilst we had some concerns over the stamp duty (land tax holiday) ending, it seems to have had quite the opposite effect.

Our stats over the summer

(Based on data from May – Jul 2021)
Total sales agreed: 62
Total instructions brought to market: 79

Between May and July we have had almost 1,200 new buyers register their details and search criteria with us. Some of the best performing areas have had an average of 20 viewings conducted, with lengthy cancellation lists and multiple offers. In July we saw the highest number of new instructions and agreed sales of all the summer months and noticeably the highest level of buyers registering their details and search criteria.

A surge of confidence from both sellers and buyers

Sellers who had been waiting in the wings for the madness to end bringing their properties to the market and buyers who were cautious through lockdown are now ready to take the plunge and look for their new home. This trend is already showing signs of continuing into August with a stronger than expected number of properties already arranged to come to the market and a good level of sales already agreed.

It remains truly a sellers' market

We're regularly achieving impressive prices and the average time taken to sell is at a record high. For every property we've listed this summer, we've had buyers willing to pay asking price or above, in just a few days after listing. Sellers remain firmly in the driving seat when it comes to negotiating as demand continues to outpace supply.

Our media team have been busier than ever!

Our videographer and editor, Scott, has definitely been a busy boy, producing some incredible promotional videos which our buyers just can’t get enough of. From early pre-market teases and full on promos, they are seriously storming the market and the results are clear to see from the incredible number of viewings being generated which in turn has achieved some fantastic over asking price sales.

Moving forward...

Now that restrictions have been lifted in Wales, we expect the market to pick up even more pace. The number of valuations we have already been invited to attend in August offers encouraging signs that more homeowners are planning to bring their properties to the market which will in turn provide buyers with more choice.

Below are some more of the fantastic results we've achieved for our vendors this summer:
