L'agenzia immobiliare Savills pubblica i dati del mercato immobiliare dell'ultimo trimestre 2014 e fa le previsioni per il 2015.
The price of an upmarket London home fell by more than 4pc in the last three months of 2014 as political uncertainty and stamp duty rises collided. Central London homes priced around the £4m mark, deemed to be the threshold for luxury, were hit hardest by George Osborne's stamp duty overhaul, falling by 4.2pc in Q4 and 1.3pc over course of 2014, according to Savills. New research from the international property group found that the adjustment of prices at the top end of the market, and the fear of a mansion tax, should Labour win the general election in May, also exerted downward pressure on family homes and flats priced above £2m, with a drop of 3.1pc in Q4. Savills has forecast a 0.1pc drop across all the price brackets in "prime" central London in 2015.
