London New Homes Round-up – the Best New Builds in the Capital’s Property Market

Posted 30 September 2019 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team looks at new build homes across London to suit a wide spectrum of requirements and budgets...

Traditionally, September marks an upturn in housing market activity, with price rises recorded for the past eight consecutive years during the month – but experts say 2019 is proving to be the exception.

Buyers are sitting tight until they can see how Brexit will play out before deciding whether to move, and, as a result, house prices are falling this month for the first time since 2010. There are fewer houses coming to market and fewer sales agreed, and London is the worst affected.

With consumers cautious about purchasing houses in the current economic climate, some experts say that housebuilders may reduce the supply of new housing in some regions. There are still plenty of interesting new developments cropping up across London, however, so if a house purchase is still on the agenda, our highlights could offer a good place to kick-start the search.
