How Much Cash Have Lucky Londoners Made On Their Homes V Regional Cities?

Recommended Posts

House prices in the capital are now 12 times earnings - so where are the affordable places to buy? London homeowners have made £144,000 on their homes since the city's housing market trough in 2009. Since the bottom of the market following the last recession, London and Oxford have experienced house price growth of 55.2 pcand 42.1pc respectively.

Margate, Slough and Clacton-on-Sea have been revealed as the UK's unlikely property hotspots, which have increased in value by almost 50 per cent in the space of a year, according to a new report. The number of property sales taking place in a handful of towns last year even managed to surpass the number which took place in these places in 2007, at the height of the housing boom.

Around 760,000 sales took place across the country between January and October, marking a 21 per cent increase on the same period in 2013.

How much cash has been taken off unlucky Londoners who may make up the future workforce?

This is great news for competing countries/cities looking to compete in the markets that London supposedly excels at. Those countries/cities in most cases will be able to offer staff far superior lifestyles and living conditions and pick and choose the skills required to beat london at its own game.

I don't see why the telegraph specifically point to the two places most closely associated with UKIP for this article.
