The housing market has seen a huge boom since the first lockdown, in part due to the Chancellor's stamp duty tax holiday. 

But some properties aren't being snapped up as quickly as one would have thought. 

Some Weymouth homes are being considerably reduced in price, in the hopes for a faster sale.

So, if you're looking for a bit of a bargain or to get your foot on the property ladder now might be your chance to scoop up your dream home.

Here are five properties which have seen the greatest price reduction:

Commercial Road, DT4

Dorset Echo:

According to Zoopla, this two-bedroom flat has seen the biggest overall price reduction since it was first listed.

This Swannery Court apartment was first listed for £200,000 but this price has been reduced by 35 per-cent since being listed for sale a year ago.

The major reduction in price could be down to the fact that the apartment is part of a retirement complex - properties like this are extremely difficult to resell as it's a niche market. 

However, the two-bedroom home has plenty to offer any prospective buyer with a spare £130,000.

Offered for sale with no onward chain the apartment has two bedrooms, shower room, living room and a kitchen.
