The million pound market

1 in 58 sales in the past 12 months was for £1 million or more.

  • There were 14,794 homes sold across England and Wales in the past 12 months priced at £1 million or more. This equates to just 1.7% of all sales, and just under £26 billion in value.
  • As in previous years, the tally of properties selling at or above the £1 million threshold was greatest in London, where over half (59%) of all £1m+ homes sold in the past year. This represents 1 in every 10 property sales.
  • London’s share of the £1m+ market has diminished over time though, as prices in other regions have increased. Back in 2013, London boasted 69% of all £1m+ sales. Since then, the share of the prime market has increased in every other region of England and Wales.
  • In the even higher echelons of the market, there were 2,860 homes sold for £2 million or more, and 379 sales for £5 million or more, in the past 12 months.
