Residential Property Forecasts

 

The Savills Residential Research team’s knowledge of the fundamentals of all aspects of the housing market is unrivalled. Here you will find our residential property forecasts as of November 2017.

Mainstream: mainstream property refers to the bulk of the UK housing market with, for example, price movements monitored by reference to national and regional average values.

Prime: the prime market consists of the most desirable and aspirational property by reference to location, standards of accommodation, aesthetics and value. Typically it comprises properties in the top five per cent of the market by house price.

Five-year forecast: The future performance of prime London will reflect the capital’s low-risk world status. Elsewhere, much depends on economic drivers and the extent to which they support a wider ripple effect.

“When researching where to invest, it is extremely important to understand regional trends and projections, and the factors behind them. However, micro market factors also play an extremely important role in our consideration when analysing a development’s investment potential. Regeneration, increased transport links or job creation could all cause an area to show greater returns than its macro-level regional projections.”

“Areas tend to see an increase in property prices when demand for properties in that area increases. When investing into a town/city that is undergoing regeneration, it is important to consider the type of property you are buying to ensure that it meets the future, growing demand – Increasing the potential rental/resale potential.”
