Residential investment monitor Q2 2014

Cluttons has released the Residential investment monitor for Q2.

The unsustainable pace of capital value growth experienced during the first quarter of this year has inevitably given way to a more subdued sales market, although values remain almost 16% ahead of this time last year.

Despite a tempering in the pace of capital value growth, strong investment interest in the Central London residential sector persists.

Private investors are particularly active, with improved rental growth emerging in the capital driven by a sharp upturn in the employment market.
