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

Posted 9 December 2019 by Rebecca Burns

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

Prospective homeowners should prepare for the possibility of a sharp rise in house prices, according to some industry experts, and those in London should aim to move within the next 12 months.

After months upon months of price falls, there are finally renewed signs of life in the London housing market. The rising house prices across the city will be driven to some extend by the lack of supply of newly listed properties, according to reports – with the biggest increases in prime London locations such as Knightsbridge and Mayfair.

With some experts forecasting substantial price growth in London in the next five years, we’ve we’ve put together a brand new round-up of new homes in the capital for prospective buyers who are eager to buy now – before the predicted price-hike. The first is a Shared Ownership option which could suit first-time buyers who are struggling to save up a deposit large enough to buy a new house in its entirety, but who want to get a foot on the property ladder.
