House prices ‘will bounce back by up to 33% over five years’

* Housing market: Warning over mortgage reform

London property prices will recover vigorously from the current slowdown, with values surging by up to a third by 2015, a report forecast today.

The biggest rises will be in Kensington and Chelsea — where average prices will leap by 33 per cent to smash the £1 million barrier — and Westminster, where they will also go up by a third, according to esearch by estate agency Savills.

But the rises will be almost as strong outside the “billionaire quarter” with Camden, Hammersmith and Fulham, Richmond, Islington and Wandsworth all seeing increases of 31 per cent, way above the predicted level of inflation.

“Up-and-coming” boroughs, including Tower Hamlets and Greenwich, will see 30 per cent rises, partly because of the Olympics effect. Even in Barking & Dagenham, the least-popular residential spot, values will rise by 20 per cent, well above the national 12 per cent.

Growth will be fuelled largely by those already on the ladder, wealthy foreign buyers and City bonuses. First-timers will continue to find it hard to purchase in the capital because of the scarcity of mortgage funding, the report warns.

The research divides London into A, B or C markets. The A markets, such as Kensington and Chelsea, are largely cash-driven and most buyers do not need a mortgage.

B areas are “middle London”, from Ealing to Enfield, with mainly owner-occupiers who still need mortgages. In the C districts, predominantly on the poorer eastern fringes, buy-to-let investors drive the market.

Please post some comments. The business editor (Jonathan Prynn) is completely daft IMO.

This monstrosity was built on a plot where they demolished a £600k house, up for £4 million, a neighbour who lives nearby told me these properties always go to foreign buyers. Within a half mile radius I saw another 3 higher priced houses being demolished, something strange is going on. :rolleyes:

Post him a link to HSBC threatening to leave the city!

Wealthy foreign investors buying up all FTB's property so they can all move up the ladder ... my a*se.

The next headline should read "London Evening Standard likely to have a circulation of 20,000,000 in 5 years. Just about as likely muppets.

Now a free newspaper the Evening Standard is limited to printing only 600k copies a day by some obscure regulation. ;)

How the heck do you know that rubbish?

Don't tell me, you read it in the Evening Standard. ;)

No, I worked for the Evening Standard from 1959 to 1980 and still keep in touch with old workmates who inform me of the latest.

When the newspaper went free 60 redundancies were required among the circulation staff. The new Russian owner said it should be from the younger staff as they have a better chance of finding new employment whereas the older longer serving ones would find it difficult. ;)

Next question please. :rolleyes:

So the Russian boss had a sense of logic then. I guess the younger ones could work down the salt mines or whatever.

No, wrong again the older ones would have got much higher redundancy and pension payments. He may have been a Communist in the past but now he has discovered Capitalist Economics. ;)

Such unfettered mania, who'd have thought Bulls from the last boom still exist! They can't claim to be bulls for the next boom already - that's 10-15 years off yet! Smeg! B)
