We cannot deny that the media attention on the London housing market has made for some grim reading. There has been article after article of Londoners leaving the capital in huge numbers.

We all know the reasons why people might consider a move away from London right now. People need more space, they have more freedom with remote working, and the idea of living in a countryside setting is very appealing right now.

At Hunters West Hampstead, we aim to ensure you make informed decisions. If you want to read about the latest studies where London homeowners share their opinion, we can help.

A survey carried out by SpareRoom spoke to more than 12,000 users of the platform. 40% of respondents said they plan on moving home post-lockdown, with 38% of respondents who live in London stating their desire to move house after the lockdown.

  • 76% of respondents said they intend to move out of their current town or city.
  • 77% of respondents from London say they plan to leave the capital entirely.
  • For the first quarter of 2021, the level of demand v supply for London was down by 23% compared to the 2020 figure.

Matt Hutchinson, SpareRoom director comments: “Over the past year we’ve seen the effect Covid-19 had on London rents, with averages falling consistently in four consecutive quarters. That's driven largely by a drop in demand compared to supply, as renters left the capital during lockdown. At the same time, rents have risen slightly in the rest of the UK.”

Matt continued by saying; “As the country starts to open up more over the coming weeks and months, we'll see pent up demand being released. We'll also see the return of jobs in sectors like entertainment, hospitality and tourism, which London relies so heavily on. Whether that means a mass return to the capital, or whether some of those who left won't return remains to be seen. But we do expect things to shift over the summer.”
