Property prices will climb 2% this year, according to a quarterly poll of 33 housing market specialists conducted by Reuters. Those polled offered a less optimistic view for the capital, saying prices in London are set to fall 0.5%. Looking ahead to 2019, they forecast that prices will climb 2% nationally and 0.9% in London, while 2020 will see values across the country climb 2.3% as those in London go up 2%. Eleven of 18 specialists who answered an extra question said turnover in London’s housing market would be lower this year than in 2017, while seven said it would be the same.
