Latest £ by floor area data for west prime central london released

by Adrian Black, Thursday 28 May 2015

We have just updated our £ per Floor area information on our online property research tool, YOUeye. The data is pre-election and shows very subdued activity. Demand is now picking up and so is supply. Transaction numbers will increase and prices should stabalise. I’ve cropped a couple of examples from www.youeye.co.uk

Conservative Party housing policies

Conservative Party housing policies

by Adrian Black, Thursday 21 May 2015

Let’s see how many of the promised housing policies are introduced and how quickly, particularly the £1bn for building on Brownfield sites. I wish we would build on a small amount of marginal greenbelt / greenfield too; it would get enjoyed more as the property owners would use it as a garden rather than it just being laid to virtual waste as a low value field.

Latest £/sq ft info loaded - London prime residential market slowing

by Adrian Black, Friday 11 July 2014

We have updated www.youeye.co.uk with the latest price and floor area information. The prime London residential market is definitely slowing - it's too early to say by how much but it's highly likely that the spend on property in 2014 will be less than in 2013. The election in 2015 is certainly having a big dampening affect. Our popular total spend graph (ou

Wow, what a day for politics - what will be the impact on property?

Wow, what a day for politics - what will be the impact on property?

by Adrian Black, Tuesday 27 May 2014

In a nutshell - BIG uncertainty ! It is over 100 years since a national election has been won by a party other than the Conservatives and Labour. This election proved to me that people doubt that > Labour can manage the economy > The Conservatives can read the mood of the country (although Cameron has held a European reform positi
