Housing market report: July 2018

With all the doom and gloom currently gracing the property pages of the newspapers, you would be forgiven for thinking the best thing to do is lock your doors, shut the curtains and wait until it all blows over. However, as the numbers are increasingly showing, the green shoots of recovery are emerging across the UK.On first reading, the April edition of the RICS residential market survey says what we already know: market activity has been muted so far this year. However, and far more importantly, it reveals how things are starting to improve. While there are still many surveyors reporting a fall in the number of buyer inquiries, the number reporting a rise has significantly increased, with expectations for further growth in the coming months. In London, this is the first time in 12 months a rising number of buyer inquiries has been reported.Read the full housing market report. Anecdotally, we are hearing more and more stories from across our network that suggest the thawing of th...

Property housing market report: August

We have taken a look at how the price point of prime property across the country has changed over the last decade. For each of the main towns in England and Wales, we have looked at how the top 5% and the top 1% have changed and ranked each by the average.The best performing area is Mayfair in London, where the price point of premium properties rose by 376% between 2007 and 2017. In other words, the price point which defines the start of the premium market increased almost by fourfold over the decade.Mayfair is followed by two other areas of central London, namely Kensington and Whitechapel (E1 to be precise), both of which grew by about 140%. The first non-London areas are the great university cities of Oxford and Cambridge which both saw the price point increase by over 80%.In the top 20, there are only two places outside of the south and east of England, which are Bristol, and more surprisingly North Shields. Bristol has seen something of a boom over the course of the last market cy...
