There will be always ups and downs regarding the Property Market, but there is always something for certain they are prompt to recover. This is the reason why we at Four Corners Properties are kin to advise our customer to keep their properties in good shape and to make improvements to them and extension for extra space whether is for a kitchen, an extra bedroom or utility room or a loft conversion will always add more value. This news article published by The Telegraph shows once more this point.

Over the past year, London, Cambridge and Bristol have seen the strongest uplifts in values out of the cities looked at, while Glasgow and Leicester have seen the lowest increases, according to the findings.

Fourteen out of the 20 cities looked at recorded year-on-year house price inflation which was below the average seen across the whole of the UK. Across the country generally, the typical house price has lifted by 9.0% or £15,300 over the last year to reach £184,580.

The average London house price has increased by 18.1pc, or £61,000 in cash terms, over the year to September, while a home buyer in Cambridge would need to find 17.9pc or £53,000 more than they would a year ago.

Meanwhile, the average Bristol property has added 14.1pc or £26,900 on to its value over the last year.

Glasgow recorded the smallest year-on-year percentage increase in prices of the 20 cities looked at, with property prices there lifting by 4.3pc or £4,600 in cash terms to reach £109,200. Property values in Leicester have increased by 4.8pc or £6,600 year-on-year to reach £141,400.

Hometrack said there is also evidence that the pace of house price growth in London is starting to slow down. London property values increased by 0.4pc month-on-month in September, compared with a recent peak of 1.0pc growth in April, which Hometrack said reflects “weaker demand” in the capital.

Yesterday, estate agent Foxtons reported a “sharp and recent slowing of volumes” in London property sales. Several recent reports have pointed to a slowdown in the London market as buyers show signs of increasing caution towards price hikes amid expectations that interest rates will rise at some point next year.

Richard Donnell, director of research at Hometrack, said that cities give a strong indication of the health of the housing market overall as they are the focus for employment, business growth and demand for homes.

He said that while house price growth has increased across all 20 cities looked at over the last year, “there is little evidence of a runaway surge in prices and the rate of growth appears to be moderating.

“The overall rate of UK house price growth has been significantly enhanced by London, so we are starting to see a corresponding dip in the rate of growth in the national figures as the rate of growth slows in London.”
