For those who are planning on selling their home soon, it’s helpful to know what is happening in the housing market in their local area.

Rightmove has looked into house price changes, buyer demand and sales agreed on a national scale, but there are also plenty of hyper-local markets in operation. It’s useful to know that what happens in one town postcode could be very different to the next.

On a national level, the number of sales being agreed is 13 per cent higher than during the same period in 2023. However, there are some areas seeing a much higher percentage of homes selling, with four areas more than doubting the percentage of homes marked sold subject to contract compared to this time last year.

The top hotspot for property sales is Chard in Somerset, which has an average house price considerably less than the regional average, which in the south west is £245,202. More locally, Northumberland town Cramlington has been ranked seventh in the list. With a 94% increase in agreed sales over the same time in 2023 and an average asking price of £194,352, the town is the third cheapest on the list, only beaten by Doncaster suburb Armthorpe in South Yorkshire and Seaham in County Durham.

Seaham is the only other North East representative on the top ten list.
