Is extending the deadline actually going to benefit homebuyers?
Despite the unseasonal weather there is no sign of a slowdown in the Cornish property market. The looming end of the stamp duty holiday on properties between £250,000 and £500,000 at the end of June has had little or no impact so far.
Social media groups locally have been full of how second home owners and estate agents are pushing up prices out of the reach of local buyers but here's the thing estate agents don't set the prices the sellers do! On top of that we haven't dealt with a single second home buyer in the last 12mths. Not through choice it's just not where the demand is right now. The demand is coming from normal people just wanting to relocate to Cornwall for a better quality of life. Can we blame them? Most of us moved here from somewhere else. For me it was 30yrs ago but the reasons were much the same.
Yes we need more affordable housing to buy and rent for low paid workers but that is more an issue with government planning policy than with the second home market.
Anyway enough my ranting if anyone sees summer can you kindly point it down here TIA.
