As we head into May, it looks like 2019 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for the housing market in London and the UK. With a record number of new developments, quotas for affordable housing and other factors, there are signs of movement of people heading in and out of the city. A lot of Londoners are looking to move out of the city-centre to enable them to buy their first property instead of renting. That’s why many are looking around the up and coming areas of London or at the nearby commuter towns for places to buy.
While many fantastic things attract people to buy property in London, one of the key aspects of its attraction is the transport system. You can get to every part of the capital via the Underground, and there are lots of regular trains, buses, taxis and even a ferry to cross the Thames. Parts of London are going through significant regeneration work, and this has led to a rise in inter-city relocations. At Aussie Man & Van, we notice this as it affects how we operate. Not only have we seen an increase in moves to South London, but we regularly relocate people to the commuter towns.
