The average house price in London has increased by approximately £11,000 in just one month. Property prices are rising at their fastest rate for more than five years as buyers flood back into the market, according to official figures today. It means London prices have risen by an average of more than £55,000 since the start of the pandemic two years ago. This is making it ever harder for young buyers to climb on or up the property ladder. Although the wider UK market may be susceptible to higher mortgage rates and the increasing cost of living, this is less likely to faze buyers within the capital. So we expect to see a complete role reversal with regard to property value performance as the year goes on.
What is your opinion? Why is the price rise so extortionate?
