This JLL research assesses why we believe that the prospects for Paddington and for the residential market in and around Paddington are very bright.

South West Residential Forecasts – February 2017

The outlook for the South West economy and housing market is bright with Bristol a leading light in terms of economic growth and city centre living. The challenge ahead is how to generate enough housing in the current economic climate.

West Midlands Residential Forecasts - February 2017

Birmingham and the West Midlands face a challenge to build enough homes to support the rising population. The Birmingham residential market is going through the early throes of a transformational change where city centre living is becoming more popular.

Northern England Residential Forecasts – February 2017

Northern England’s main cities are beginning to thrive again. Manchester, the UK’s second city, is flourishing amid strong housing demand and significant development activity and is becoming increasingly global. Leeds and Liverpool are also now looking forward with greater confidence. The region will benefit further from the Government’s Northern Powerhouse programme.

Scotland Residential Forecasts – January 2017

We expect residential development activity to increase steadily over the next five years as the demand and supply imbalance intensifies. Housebuilders are feeling more optimistic but they are treading carefully, fully aware of the recent past as well as the uncertainties surrounding Brexit. These pressures will lead to price and rental growth especially in key city centres.

Shared Ownership - A Problem Shared January 2017

Affordability issues are mounting all across the UK pricing more and more people out of home ownership. Policy makers have dabbled with an array of demand side measures to ease the crisis, notably through shared ownership and shared equity tenures. However, supply of these products has been relatively subdued, until now.

Car Parks to Residential: Driving Innovation

The UK is in the midst of a housing crisis fuelled by an acute imbalance between supply and demand. There is a lack of available development land in locations where new housing is needed most. JLL Residential Research explores an innovative solution to enable the creation of sites sufficient to build homes for one million people.

UK Residential Investment - Into the Mainstream November 2016

The strength of momentum behind UK residential investment continues to improve, despite good reasons to expect otherwise. The headwinds are well-known; softening market performance, post-EU referendum uncertainty and changes to Stamp Duty that could have undermined growth of the asset class.

UK Residential Forecasts – Uncharted Territory November 2016

Brexit will dominate UK housing markets over the next few years as we enter uncharted territory. The big question for the industry is whether policy initiatives target short-term supply improvements, or look beyond the immediate horizon to create lasting, long-term solutions.
