Is The Property Market Topping Out?

There’s been some very interesting news of late coming from property market reporters, especially those in London. We’ve been following pricing trends in the London housing market especially closely during this period of regeneration after the economic downturn, but it appears that the upwards trend is beginning to level out, in accordance with predictions that have been floating around for some time now. Despite this, investment firms report that client confidence remains exceptionally high, so much so that demand for investment property is causing intense competition amongst property funds in the mid-price range.

Domestic Property Levelling Out

Domestic house prices have been doing especially well in the Capital, far outpacing their regional counterparts. However, whilst it may be unfortunate, the simple fact is that the rise could not have sustained itself at such a level forever. Fears of another potential market bust have led to government-enforced restrictions in areas such as mortgage lending, in an attempt to create a controlled cool-down situation, rather than a devastating boom-and-bust which would put the property market right back to square one.

Commercial Investment Stays Strong

Although small-scale, private investors may find the market for investment will begin, if not shrinking, then certainly stabilising, large investment funds have found that their clients remain eager to invest in property. The announcement of a £150m property investment deal between Partnership and Rothschild is just one example of this. Indeed, the FT Advisor reports that the eagerness of investors to get into the property market is resulting in managers being “overwhelmed” by the demand for commercial property. Intense competition in certain areas of the market is the result, forcing investment funds to seek alternative investment sources in order to keep their cash-transaction ratio at an acceptable level. There is, quite simply, not enough property to go around.
