  • Good summary.

    One interesting statistic. Pryor states that 30% of realised sales (85,000) are cash. Given that mortgage approvals (BoE) are running at circa 47,000 and the average number of monthly transactions (LR) are 53,000, the remainder must be auction sales or foreign purchase.

    I’m trying to get a handle on monthly cash purchase volumes – so would welcome any illumination from other posters.

  • A couple of things;-

    1. The proportion of ‘Cash’ buyers comes from the CML in a report (since update) called The Changing Nature of Property Sales.

    2. Don’t confuse Land Reg sale volumes with UK numbers. I used HMRC numbers which are for the whole country.

    Hope this helps.
