Price growth strengthens

Although year-on-year price growth across London is marginally lower than the 4% recorded a year ago, double-digit annual price growth is currently evident in three areas in the capital. While a lack of supply has not been as pronounced in London as in other parts of the UK, there is clear evidence of rising demand.

Market activity is fast-paced. According to Rightmove, the average time taken to sell a property in London is 57 days.The proportion of properties selling within their first week of listing is at a record high (Zoopla) and the average time taken to sell a property in the UK is nearly three weeks quicker than in April 2019 (Rightmove). Lifestyle change continues to drive demand, buyers also aided by the extension of elements of tax relief and the new 95% government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, available on either new or resale properties.
