Stockbrokers and Bankers in the UK have traditionally stuck to the old adage “Sell in May and don’t come back till St Legers Day”. The flurry of bear activity in The City in May is a long-standing tradition. Can the same be said for the Property Market in London? According to recent research carried out by an online platform estate agency, 1st May marks the start of an 8 week period during which 10% more properties are sold than in any other time of the year. And better news still for Sellers is that annual house price has risen by 10.9% per annum this year and Prime Central London is holding its own. The growth rate is set to continue for the next 4-6 years making property a sound investment for individuals and real estate portfolios. London is still the capital of choice but Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol are also witnessing significant annual rate rises and with lower capital outlay, the rental yields are extremely attractive for buy-to-let investors and private equity real estate funds.
