London values blossom against nationwide recovery

There was also a 19 per cent increase in the number of homes for sale, as Londoners showed their confidence in the housing market.

haart, which is part of the UK’s largest independent estate agency group, compiled the survey using statistics from 23 of its London branches.

Chief Executive Paul Smith said: “It’s very encouraging that the London figures are on the up.
