He analyzed 1,783 home sales between August 2020 and August 2021, using a asking price versus sale price tool and land registry data.

The company says its data monitors the entire sale of the home, from its initial listing to negotiations and offers, to final completion.

The biggest drops were in the RG9 postal code, which largely corresponds to the Henley-on-Thames area.

Data shows that 56 sellers reduced the original asking price by an average of £ 24,696 over the 12-month period.

The lowest prices were seen in the RG14 (Newbury) area where 76 house sellers reduced their prices by £ 4,509.

Co-founder Ruban Selvanayagam said: “Despite what has been a very active market, homebuyers are still, on the whole, able to negotiate lower prices.

“There is also broader evidence that surveyors downgrade properties that don’t match the realities.

“This means that properties end up selling for less than the real estate agent’s initial price estimate. “

“This is relative because a more expensive property is likely to see a larger price difference.”
