New Build Home Development on a Spree in London - Know Why?

New Build Home Development on a Spree in London

It's no secret that London has recently become somewhat of a mecca for new build properties. So much so, that it leaves many people scratching their heads, wondering why London happened to be the chosen location for so many new developments.  

Although, with just a little research and knowledge about London, the answer to that dilemma becomes crystal clear.  

In this article, we will be discussing the reasons behind why London has become a hotspot for new build home development, as well as the impact that it will have on future investors or homeowners.  


London’s Already Established Infrastructure Make the Perfect Place for New Builds 

Due to the fact that London is the Capital of the UK, it leads to London getting access to the best infrastructure care available.  

This means that it ends up being just easier to build a new build in London. There Is no length set-up process required to plan things like logistics or transport of goods, everything is all taken care of, and for the most part, just waiting for new prospective landlords to come take advantage. 

This can save new project managers so much hassle when building new build properties in London compared to anywhere else, and that’s even without mentioning the financial incentives that come with it.  

London actively encourages potential investors into its city through this already established infrastructure, as well as assisting new investors in any way possible.  

Because of all the reasons listed above, London is just the perfect location for new projects to be built. Everything is just so much easier, as well as substantially cheaper.

The Butterfly Effect & Extraordinary Returns on London New Builds 

Carrying over from the first point, London manages to entice a wide variety of investors into its city, which has a powerful butterfly effect. 

When a location experiences a lot of growth and innovation, it draws in more potential investors and creates a long-lasting cycle of more and more investors coming along.  
When new landmarks are being built, such as the new Versace apartment tower in London, it brings along with it a plethora of new investors.  

This is because all of the new business drives the prices of properties to go up, and when new potential investors see this trend, they want to get in on the action too. 

Like we mentioned before, this creates a cycle of excitement as property prices go up which entices more investors to get involved, which further makes the prices go up and the loop continues.  

For as long as these investors keep predicting that the prices of London properties will raise, it is more than likely that they will actually do so.  

Of course, this creates a game of cat and mouse where investors are worrying if it's too late to invest now, which will eventually surmount in the prices of properties falling.  
Although, for now, prices of London properties are still continuing to go up and new developments are continuing to spread further.  


Taking into consideration all the points we mentioned throughout the article, it becomes increasingly clear why London is the chosen location for many up-and-coming housing project managers and developers.  

Overall, the fact that London is experiencing so much innovation and reinvigoration is going to have a net positive effect on London's housing market as a whole. There will be a vast number of available properties at any given time compared to how things have been over the last decade, where an available property is a rarity. 

Furthermore, all of these new builds are amazing opportunities for both investors and would-be homeowners alike. For investors, they get to have more chances to get their hands-on property that is likely to exponentially appreciate in price, and for homeowners, they get a better chance at getting a home in the capital of the UK, for a relatively affordable price.
