Osborne says he will be cutting stamp duty for 98% of people from midnight tonight.
Sales over 937k will be hit with higher taxes, so it may well be a late night for estate agents pushing through deals before the end of the day.
This is being seen as an attempt to tackle Ed Miliband's "mansion tax" policy, and is the big surprise announcement from the Autumn Statement.
Financial Times reporter @kadhimshubber is providing some interesting analysis of the Autumn Statement.
Osborne says student loans of up to £10k will be available to "all young people doing postgraduate degrees".
He lists a range of other education and science measures as well, like committing money to the exploration of Mars. He jokes at the expense of Labour: "We've often glanced at the red planet and wondered if there's any intelligent life there."
The Google tax announcement.
Osborne announced that multinational companies such as Google, Apple, and Amazon who "artificially" transfer profits outside the UK will have a 25% tax placed upon them.
This new tax, called the diverted profits tax, will raise £1 billion over five years, according to the chancellor.
The tax was announced at the Conservative party conference.
The deficit will go down.
The chancellor said that the "long-term economy plan is on course" because although the deficit is still higher than predicted, forecasted figures show that the deficit will continue to fall at a faster rate every year from 2015.
But public sector net borrowing hasn't quite gone down to £40bn, as announced in 2010.
A few hints
David Cameron dropped a couple of hints about the Autumn Statement during Prime Minister's Questions, raising suspicions that it might be more positive for the government than expected. He said that when Ed Miliband hears the statement, he will "will look as awkward as when he ate that bacon sandwich".
