Depending on the source you look at, it takes on average (from a cold start) between 176 to 200 days to sell a home.
This means the opportunity clock is now ticking before that March 31 deadline.
Potential benefits from the Stamp Duty holiday are:
- Deals that were dead in the water over a difference in the value buyers and sellers were prepared to accept are now potentially resurrected.
- Having more as a deposit is opening more of the mortgage market to buyers.
- As is the decision by several lenders to reintroduce 90% Loan to Value mortgages.
- If you're thinking of selling, you'll also benefit from the Stamp Duty removal if the place you're buying is under the £500,000 bracket.
