The market is understandably patchy as many prospective buyers ‘wait and see’ but it’s not dire. The doomsayers love to quote Nine Elms where there are 17 different projects running near simultaneously to sell 18,000 up-market homes. That is an example of rampant capitalism and poor planning. It was spotted as an emerging serious problem of over-supply last autumn and definitely can’t be blamed on BREXIT.
