What budget do you have for a new home?
Conducting a property price search for the London Borough of Bromley, as of the 3rd of February 2021, returns 145 properties listed with a price of at least £1m. For Bromley, as of 3rd February 2021, there are 50 properties listed with a price of at least £1m. This means Bromley accounts for more than one-third of the million pound properties in the borough.
Ben Taylor, CEO of the estate agency which conducted this research, said; “The higher tiers of the housing market have arguably suffered most due to Covid uncertainty and activity hasn’t been boosted to the same extent as a result of the current stamp duty holiday. That said, it’s reassuring to see that a robust number of transactions have still taken place despite the turbulence of the last year and this is a foundation that will no doubt be built on in 2021."
Ben Taylor concluded by saying; “Of course, London leads the way in terms of the sheer volume of sales but there has been activity across all regions of England and Wales and, in fact, some regions have seen these transactions complete for a similar or even higher average sold price than the capital itself.”
