West London market springs into life post election

For a time this spring it appeared the property market was on ice, comment west London estate agents Winkworth. The run up to the general election held a number of buyers back - both residential and buy-to-let - as they waited of the result of the general election and any property changes it might have brought. With a Conservative Government now the majority party, thoughts of a mansion tax, rent caps and the abolition of tenant fees have been put on the back burner. West London estate agents, including Winkworth, noted a tangible rise in buyer activity the day after the election result, with what is being called 'frenzied Friday' seeing buyers of £2 million plus properties re-enter the market. West London areas that are no stranger to million-pound properties, including Ealing, Acton, Shepherd's Bush and Maida Vale, are once again free flowing property markets, with buyers and sellers finding renewed confidence in the fact their move won't be penalised by a new tax. The election result is also having a positive impact on the West London buy-to-let market. There was speculation ahead of the vote that many landlords may exit the private rental sector if rent caps and mandatory thee-year tenancies were introduced, which would have had a devastating effect on supply and demand in the capital. Now, there is renewed interest in property investment, with first-time investors making enquiries and existing landlords looking to grow their portfolio, given the free and fluid buy-to-let conditions that prevail. The current Government now has the chance to make a positive impact on the London property market but ensuring further redevelopment of neighbourhoods and that more homes - for private rent and for sale - are built to meet the growing demand. In the meantime, Winkworth branches across west London have a stunning collection of homes for sale, suitable for both residential and investment purchasers. Here are some of our personal recommendations:- Brackenbury Village is the newest enclave to attract attention in west London, and its smart Victorian terraces are loved by families with children in the well regarded private schools close by. Elgin Avenue in Maida Vale is blessed with rows of five-storey Victorian terraces properties, some of which remain intact as large multi-storey family homes. Hillcrest Road in Ealing always attracts attention for its views over Hanger Hill Park. This pretty tree-lined road is coveted by those looking for substantial residences in tucked-away positions. If you are interested in buying or selling a west London property, please contact one of our west London offices today.
