Cheaper London Homes Failing to Sell in Relation to High-Priced Locations

London homes between £650,000 and £1M selling faster than cheaper homes

Let’s imagine for a moment that you require a quick property sale in London due to an impending repossession or a similar unfortunate circumstance. You have remained confident due to the fact that your current home is valued at only £300,000 pounds. So, you are not concerned in regards to a quick turnover. Unfortunately, you might very well be wrong in taking this stance. A recent article highlighted the fact that London properties costing between £650,000 pounds and £1 million pounds are selling faster than more moderately priced homes. This is actually a bit ironic considering the fact that only the richest house hunters seem to be active while middle-income buyers complain that they are being shut out of the market. This is another example of how London house prices appear to have become detached from local incomes. What does this mean in regard to a fast London house sale?

The mortgage market? who or what is going to fix it – The Crosby Report

What role has the mortgage market played in falling house prices?  Is there an end in sight to the current collapse of the housing market?  “Not in the near future” seems to be the verdict.  

The government has, to date, prided itself on the management of the economy and the resilience of the UK economy versus the rest of the world.  Many homeowners have enjoyed unprecedented growth in house prices. Those however not on the property ladder have been forced to rent as houses and flats in many areas, once considered a good “first time buy” have simply become unaffordable. 

Rising costs such as fuel and food are hitting homeowners hard and repossessions have increased dramatically as households struggle to manage monthly costs. However, many commentators argue that it is the impact of banks and building societies restricting and withdrawing mortgage products that has been the key factor in the current housing crisis.

Quick House Sale Guide

Selling your house can be very stressful – the process can take a long time, and there is always the risk of getting stuck in a chain, meaning that you are dependant on your buyer selling their own house before they can complete the purchase of yours.  There is also the risk of a chain breaking down at the last minute because their own property sale has fallen through, which means you have to start all over again.

House repossessions rise again

The figures are from the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the industry body, which laid the blame on two factors:

An increase in sub-prime mortgage lending, where the higher risks from lending to people with poor credit histories means those arrears more often lead to repossessions.

London housing market remains buoyant

Though house price rises in the majority of the country are beginning to slow down, the London housing market continues to rise, as demand for property in the capital shows no signs of slowing down.

For those currently renting property, and first time buyers looking to get onto the housing ladder, the slowing of house price inflation around the country will be welcome news, though the Halifax reports that, for key public sector workers, 70% of towns are out of their price range.
