March home sales data still positive

Residential property sales edged down only slightly in March compared with February, despite the lockdown imposed towards the end of last month, new figures suggest. Across the UK, 99,440 home sales took place last month, 0.2% down on February, according to provisional estimates from HMRC. The March total was also 0.3% higher than the same month a year earlier, despite stricter measures introduced from March 23 to limit the spread of coronavirus.
