Interessante punto di vista a seguito del cambiamento sul calcolo della stamp duty. Improvvisamente le proprietá con un valore di mercato vicino allo scaglione per il cambio della stamp duty, che prima erano vendute poco al di sotto del massimo valore dello scaglione, con il nuovo regime di calcolo progressivo sono ora "libere" di essere vendute per il loro corretto valore di mercato.
The changes in stamp duty mean that the cliff-edge between different bands has gone. Previously, around 30 times more homes were sold between £245,000 and £250,000 than between £250,000 and £255,000. This creates odd price distortions. Sellers with homes that should have been worth between £251,000 and £275,000 usually had to resign themselves to only getting £250,000 for their property. This is because the buyer would baulk at the giant rise in duty to be paid The stamp duty shake-up looks to have ended this quirk. Property experts now believe there will be a boom in sales of homes between £250,000 and £280,000. Estate agents say their phones have been ringing off the hook since the shake-up was announced. According to property website Rightmove, there are currently 37,500 homes for sale in the sweet spot territory: between £240,000 and £280,000.
