In future months I’ll also provide the property prices stats for Hayle, Penzance and St Ives but as June is the latest data available and is the month the industry had just come out of lockdown, the figures are too small to analyse accurately.
It is however, a good benchmark to document how much the property market has managed to recover in the second half of the year.

As we don’t yet have the average sold prices for anything later than June, I thought it would be interesting to look at the current average asking price in September 2020 compared with September 2019. I’ve broken this down for you by number of rooms for Cornwall, then Hayle, Penzance and St Ives specifically.

Clearly, as we’ve come out of lockdown the property prices market influencers have been:

  • Less properties on the market than people wanting to buy.
  • The stamp duty holiday.
  • Many city dwellers wanting to move, or have second homes near our gorgeous beaches.


Only time will tell whether these asking prices translate into sold property prices. My guess is that this bubble will burst early in the new year. But then I’ve been wrong before, so watch this space!
