Focus update:

  • House price growth slows 
    The latest figures from Halifax reveal that the rise in house prices slowed in August, with prices in the three months to August standing 9.7% higher than in the same period a year ago, a slowdown from the annual price growth of 10.2% recorded in July.

  • Battersea Power Station seeking foreign businesses 
    Battersea Power Station has launched a worldwide campaign to attract foreign businesses to the centrepiece of the redevelopment in south London. The power station is being rebuilt in an £8bn scheme that plans to deliver 3.5m sq ft of shops, restaurants and office space as well as 4,000 homes.

  • De-clutter to increase sale price
    A study of 250 estate agents has found that hiding family photos, taking off the sitting room door and moving the car off the driveway could increase the value of your property. The research from Big Yellow Self Storage also shows that the clichéd tactics of baking fresh bread or brewing coffee before a viewing really do work, adding £849 to the sale price of an average property.
