Average house prices in London 2019-2020, by borough

With vastly more job and cultural opportunities, megacities continue attracting people from all over the world. Since the beginning of the 1980s, the population of London has increased by more than 2 million inhabitants and in the next 20 years, it is forecast to increase by almost 1.5 million.

Demand for housing and house prices

The growing population inevitably leads to rising housing demand and prices. Between March 2019 and March, the average price of a house in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which is the most expensive borough in London, increased by almost 178 thousand British pounds to approximately 1.4 million British pounds. In comparison, a house in Barking and Dagenham cost approximately 327 thousand British pounds

Residential properties transactions

Nevertheless, house sales do not always increase on an annual basis. Since 2016, the overall number of residential properties sold in the UK has fallen from approximately 1.06 million in 2016 to 1.18 million in 2019.
