Greater London property prices hit a new record high
Soaring property prices in London
Greater London property prices hit a new record high.
Property prices in Greater London have just pipped the £600,000 mark for the first time on record, according to the UK Land Registry.
The continued upward trend for residential property prices in Greater London has resulted in inflated property prices driven by record lows in bank mortgage rates and beneficial falls in basic rate Stamp Duty from the UK government.
England and Wales, however, is showing no signs of the recovery being enjoyed by Greater London.
Prices will also soften as transactions plummet following the Q1 stampede and tax changes continue to rock the upper-end of the market. This is being compounded by pre-referendum jitters and global economic uncertainty, as international investors face struggling stock markets, falls in oil prices and an unsettled Chinese economy.
However, a slightly softer pre-Brexit market could potentially offer plenty of opportunity for seasoned investors, if sellers are looking for a speedy exit.
