Pent-up demand is lending new pace to the South West London sales market, as buyers and sellers tire of waiting for Brexit negotiations to conclude.
We’re more than three years on from our EU referendum and with exit deadlines being surpassed and revised – and with no clear plan for the future after the Prime Minister’s resignation – home movers in South West London are showing strong signs they can’t wait for a Brexit resolution.
Many buyers and sellers put their moving aspirations on ice back in June 2016 for fear of the unknown. Some will have banked on a definite withdrawal from the EU on 29th March 2019 but with drawn-out negotiations, the general public are developing what we’re calling a ‘three year itch’ and are now reigniting their property plans.
Aspire has been charting house prices in South West London over the last 12 months and has noted a year-on-year uplift. This reflects increasing mobility in the local market and a willingness among movers to press on with plans, despite the ongoing Brexit saga. Encouragingly, interest rates remain attractively low, creating excellent moving conditions for those who simply can’t delay buying or selling any longer.
