“We’re used to hearing about how expensive certain parts of the UK property market are but when you consider price in relation to the volume of housing stock, it really highlights how valuable the UK property market is as a whole,” said GetAgent’s founder and CEO, Colby Short.

“With prices continuing to climb as a result of a stamp duty holiday saving we should see the UK property market grow even further in value over the coming months. While some areas will always command a higher price tag, they will also continue to play second fiddle to those with a greater abundance of stock where overall value is concerned,” he added.
