London New Homes Round-up

Posted 4 May 2020 by Rebecca Burns

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

With London's property market in lockdown along with the rest of the country, current buyer activity is restricted to virtual viewings, remote liaison, and the possibility of making reservations on properties.

When quarantine measures are eventually lifted, however, the London property market could well experience a mini-boom similar to that seen post-Brexit. The capital could see the release of pent-up demand as buyers purchase property they have been coveting during lockdown.

For prospective buyers who are spending time now researching London properties to view later, we have put together a selection of some exciting new developments, many of which have videos and virtual tours available online.
