London house prices: The 5 most viewed London homes since stamp duty announcement
As lockdown continues to ease, it is becoming more accessible for people to move.
What's more, is that people are beginning to re-evaluate what matters to them most - whether this be living in the city and being the first one back to the office, or escaping to the countryside with all the green space your heart desires.
While financially it may seem a little scary to purchase a property right now, the Government's stamp duty holiday announcement may have put some minds at ease.
The stamp duty threshold has temporarily increased to £500,000 for property sales in England and Northern Ireland until March 31, 2021, meaning anyone buying a house costing up to £500,000 before then will not pay any stamp duty.

The holiday came into effect on Wednesday, July 8, and had an immediate effect on buyers.
In England, there was a 29% increase in buyer demand on that Wednesday alone.
And in London, there was a 48% increase in demand in London compared to the average of the previous four weeks, according to Zoopla.
So, with all this excitement around property purchases, it's interesting to take a look at the properties in London that have been checked out most since the big news.
The properties are all priced between £300k and £500k - the price bracket set to benefit most from the financial relief.
Indeed, the houses are all located within an exciting mix of boroughs - notably on the outskirts of the capital.
So, for all you fellow nosy property spies - here is a countdown of the most viewed homes in London since the stamp duty announcement, according to Zoopla:
5. Three bedroom end terrace in Morden
This Croydon property offers generous amounts of space and access to the most stunning garden, making for a great family home. Plus, it's really not a bad price considering you're a 20 minute train away from London Bridge!
3. Three bedroom end terrace in Stanmore
It seems West London is also proving a popular retreat amongst property viewers, with this Harrow home certainly catching the attention of many. And to be fair, when you see the size of the front and rear gardens - you can see why.
2. Three bedroom end terrace in Harrow
Another Harrow property gaining attention, and we can't say we're surprised. This end of terrace home may need a cosmetic update to unlock its full potential, but the garden space you'd gain from moving in here is pretty incredible!
