Prime Central London - May 2018

Prime Central London

The pricing adjustments in the Prime Central London sales and lettings markets are now diminishing. The sales market continues to absorb the stamp duty reforms which have impacted the market above £3m in particular but, with price falls slowing and greater activity at the top-end of the market, there is now light at the end of the tunnel. The lettings market is facing a more fundamental change with lower corporate demand in core Prime Central London areas, while new developments and more affordable locations further afield see increased interest. These challenges are being hampered by Brexit and slowing economic growth although the weak pound is an attractive aspect for overseas buyers.  

South East London

South East London has benefitted from a significant facelift in recent years. A number of regeneration projects, including the redevelopment of ex-council estates, has not only transformed the local area, but has attracted in other developments. The prospects for South East London are bright, with plenty of residential developments raising the bar even further whilst also providing a more diverse choice of residents.

Chelsea is a vibrant and eclectic enclave of Prime Central London. It contrasts the traditional with the contemporary in terms of residents, retail, leisure and property. While its housing market is very established it stays current through the tasteful renovation and redevelopment of existing property while also welcoming new development. New large schemes on the fringes of Chelsea coupled with smaller developments slotted into the existing streetscape point to an exciting few years ahead.
