What can you buy for £500,000 and under in Essex?
Take advantage of the stamp duty holiday on your next move
With the stamp duty holiday in place until March next year, now's the time to make your move to ensure you benefit from no stamp duty on properties at the value of £500,000 or under.
The stamp duty holiday is particularly good news for second steppers, those that previously bought as first time buyers, because price levels in the area mean that most would be buying in the higher duty band and would have to find that money in cash. That would be £15,000 if you bought at £500,000, a big ask if you now have a small family and only one income.
To save you time, we've put together our top properties up to the price of £500,000 to see what you could get for your money and where you could save.
Here are some great Essex properties at or below the £500,000 limit. Once you’ve found your new ideal home you can turn your thoughts to what you could do with your £15,000 saving!
