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

Posted 2 January 2019 by Rebecca Burns

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

With some London sellers slashing house prices in a bid to attract nervous buyers, aspiring homeowners in the capital who are willing to take the plunge despite the current Brexit uncertainty may find they can secure a good deal.

Media reports say there has been a bigger-than-usual festive slowdown, with London being the region worst hit – and sellers there now offering the largest discounts since 2012.

Buyer interest tends to get its spark back straight after Christmas as househunters dedicate some of their time off work around New Year to kickstart their new home search. This means that the window of opportunity for negotiating peaks before Boxing Day. With continuing Brexit concerns, however, it is likely that the New Year could be a bit more sluggish than usual for London.

Here’s our latest round-up of new developments in the capital.

The apartments are close to high street stores, independent shops, a mix of cafes and bars, and a good selection of leisure facilities including Enfield Golf Club, King George Sailing Club, Trent Country Park and Cineworld.
