London Witnesses Surge In Luxury Homes Sales Following Brexit Referendum

28.08.18

London's luxury real estate market is on the rise, after three years of decline.

Sales of homes worth more than £20m (US$25.42m) increased 44% this year, according to the latest figures from Savills - with experts claiming this spike is due to price-falls following the Brexit referendum.

Savills reported that the agency’s residential transactions dropped by 7% in London during the last six months, and 10% in rest of the UK. Despite this, the average value of London property sold by the firm rose 16% to £3.2m (US$4.07m). Transaction values were 3% higher year on year outside the capital.

“It’s still difficult, but at the top end of the market we are definitely seeing a little bit more action,” says Jeremy Helsby, Savills chief executive.

A weaker pound and higher yields are some of the factors drawing overseas investors to the London property market, according to Savills. “Many of these investors, while they accept that occupational risk has increased due to Brexit, still see the UK as comparatively secure in a global context,” Jeremy adds.

However, experts are unsure how the remainder of the year will fare, as the political and economic turmoil created by Britain’s negotiations to leave the European Union have ade it difficult to predict market volumes.
