A pre-Easter bank holiday surge in properties coming on the market has been recorded by Rightmove.

The property portal said the Thursday immediately before the Easter bank holiday weekend was the biggest day for new home-sellers coming to market so far this year.

Thursday March 28 2024 was also the third biggest day for new property listings since August 2020, with Boxing Day in 2022 and 2023 being the only days with more properties coming to market in one day, Rightmove said.
