The 2014 outlook for London and Sydney property

Would you like to know what's likely to happen to the London and Sydney property markets in 2014? If so, then check the latest Buyers Eye releases from AllenWargent. 

Here we discuss how we see London's ongoing strong performance in most sectors of the market in 2014, although we now note that the introduction of a capital gains tax on foreign buyers in 2015 is likely to see a pull-back in the ultra-premium sector.

In this London Winter 2013/14 issue of the Buyer's Eye we also take a look at a detailed look at house prices, rental costs and commuting costs in some of the favoured central London suburbs.

We look at the respective income required to buy a terraced house in some of the popular well-heeled suburbs as well as identifying where we are seeing new commercial developments coming online.

And here we do the same for Sydney's resurgent property markets.

In the Sydney Summer 2013/14 issue of the Buyer's Eye we reveal our detailed view of the 2014 outlook by looking at the flow-through of mortgage financing data.

We identify where we see the Sydney markets growing as well as those sectors of the market where we see risk on the horizon with new apartment developments threatening oversupply.

We also note the challenges facing first-time buyers in Sydney as market entry prices appreciate. Check it out here

With years of experience of working in and investing in the central London property markets, we know it inside out and backwards.

For example, do you know where London's many Universities are located and where to rent or buy property in order to study there, and which Tube Stations you will be near? We do.

Here's a quick primer - we've even mapped it all out for you.

So, 'til next season...happy reading from the team at AllenWargent. Feel free to stop by our website anytime where we provide plenty of useful information here.
