Apparently the recommendation is to buy gold (as is so often the case). I think fhe flaw in this argument is that gold doesn't pay any rent - but I suppose it would be an alternative for the buy-to-not-rent investor

As i have mentioned before I am in the industry. Most properties that are selling in South West London are at a 15% discount from their peak. What i have noticed in the last month is that landlords are starting to offload properties. It had to come at some stage as all the new buy to let rules means its harder to make money when you stop relying on capital gains. The penny has dropped and we are now seeing landlords with two or three properties downsizing.

Barking and Dagenham prices up 4%. Many places still rising. Meanwhile, seven skyscrapers under construction in the square mile with many in planning and Canary Wharf has more cranes than a trout full river. Watch places commutable to Liverpool St and Canary Wharf. Tens of thousands of jobs on the way once we get trade deals with America, etc.

Libertas@4 Yes you have to remember the London housing market acts like a tide going up and down. When it's going down Chelsea and Westminster gets hit first, then it's your Kensington, then it comes out further to places like Richmond upon the Thames, Wimbledon or Hampstead in the North. Then it comes through to you classic middle-class areas like Kingston upon Thames and at the end of the queue is your Croydons and Dagenham. It is quite possible that the price drops haven't fed into the indices for Dagenham yet. But if you have property there, time to review it. You cannot fight against a tide going out

I don`t think libertas is referring to the numerous sky scrapers as a classic sign of the top of the boil, but rather as evidence of how well things are going i.e. supportive of housing costs.
