JLL UK Residential Forecasts - your complete view for 2018 and beyond

The UK housing market is adjusting to varying levels of political and legislative change, but the 'New Housing Paradigm' is about a bigger, structural shift.

Residential Forecasts: West Midlands

Birmingham’s city centre has grown as a desirable place to live for many of the city’s young professionals, especially over the past couple of years. As yet, however, the residential development market has not responded sufficiently to meet this growing demand. This is partly because the latest wave of demand is relatively new, but is also because of the scarcity of available, developable sites in the city centre. These dynamics have pushed sales prices and rents higher.

Residential Forecasts: South West England

Main regional city centres across the UK are expected to outperform with higher sales price and rental growth as the rise of city centre living continues. Both Bristol and Exeter have seen resurgent sales and rental markets in recent years. 

Residential Forecasts: Scotland

Main regional city centres across the UK are expected to outperform with higher sales price and rental growth as the rise of city centre living continues. 
Edinburgh in particular is forecast to see strong price growth as limited development activity creates further discord between demand and supply. Glasgow too is set for an exciting few years and something of a revolution in housing terms.

Residential Forecasts: Northern England

Main regional city centres across the UK are expected to outperform with higher sales price and rental growth as the rise of city centre living continues. All the main cities in Northern England – Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, have seen resurgent sales and rental markets in recent years. 

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.

Housing Policy - Building Consensus, Building Momentum

The UK Government has a domestic policy agenda that is at least as challenging as the EU exit negotiations are likely to prove, and with new Housing Minister Alok Sharma now in place and the coalition agreed, Government can begin to focus on the endemic housing challenges of undersupply and chronic unaffordability that previous administrations have failed to effectively address.
