45%~ drop in the number of properties for sale on Rightmove in my area


Recommended Posts

I have been watching the number of properties available on Rightmove in my area now for at least 7 years.  I regularly take a postcode from the centre of town specify a 5 mile radius and see what is available both SSTC and without (added at anytime).  Typically I see about 3600 listed including SSTC and I don't think I have ever seen it above 4000, currently it is 3480.

The interesting part though is the number of properties which are not SSTC.  The highest I ever saw was roughly 1750 which was about 3 years ago and it dipped down to 1350 for a period. Basically going up and down between 1400 to 1600 mostly over the years. 

The current number available is only 970 Last week it was about 1030 so it is dropping quite quickly.

My searches in Bucks and Beds are looking pretty normal. They have always been a lot smaller than your searches though. I am only looking for 2 / 3 bedroom properties within a certain price range. 

Can you tell if it is a drop in a certain type or price or overall?

I haven't looked at the breakdown over this time but my gut feeling is that it is across the board however I have got the sense that I see more expensive bigger houses than before but that maybe just my bias in expecting more considering the situation.
