Property Investment In London

London is the capital city of England and it is considered one of the world’s most important cities. It is the UK’s largest city and it is home to Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Tower Bridge, to name just a few of the most famous tourist attractions. The London Underground is an integral part of the city and it is the oldest underground railway network in the world.

London is also one of the leading financial and economic centres of the world, serving as a particularly important location for international finance. London’s finance industry is based in the City of London and Canary Wharf. 

There is regeneration occurring across the whole region, place with boroughs such as Tower Hamlets, Newham and Wandsworth enjoying some exciting new developments.

Why invest here?

London is a complex place to invest. It is not currently somewhere to invest if you are looking for very attractive yields. Furthermore, it is the highest value part of the country in terms of property prices and as such investing is very expensive, especially when you factor in your one-off cost of stamp duty.

However, it’s a different story when you look at what London has to offer by way of capital growth. For example, if you had bought a property for £430,000 in Q1 of 2014, then this year it would potentially be worth £526,046 (Nationwide HPI). 

That is excellent capital growth and creates an unparalleled return on investment, especially after factoring in the rent you would have been receiving over the years.

Typically, London prices do very well over the long term. For example, after the last major global financial crash in 2008, they excelled.

Savills published that between 2007 and 2017, London property prices grew by 63.5%. The average across the rest of the UK was only 15.8%, for comparison.

According to Zoopla (June 2020), the average price paid for a property in London is £642,890. The average price paid for a flat is £500,793.

London house prices has increased by 14.29% in the last 5 years (Zoopla June 2020). Hometrack’s latest report shows house prices have increased 1.1% between April 2019 – April 2020.

Realistically, you will generally get better yields when investing further north (such as Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester), as initial purchase prices and stamp duty will be considerably lower in comparison to London.

That said, if you pick certain areas of London, you can find quite good yields, but it isn’t easy. Totally Money’s buy-to-let yield map reports that London’s E12 postcode can achieve yields of 6.04%.

The HS2 will efficiently connect London with the Northern Powerhouses and will cut the commute time to and from these place. London Euston Station will be one of the stations along with Old Oak Common which is a new super hub and set to be the best-connected rail station in the UK.

“With the current prices in London it is hard to get a good yield or ROI in comparison to investing up north and prices don’t seem to be really increasing any time soon. That said, there are some areas to look out for with regeneration projects in the pipeline that means they are likely to experience good capital growth.” – Tobi Mancuso, Director.
