House prices to grow 20% by the year 2020

16th November 2015


The latest forecast from Knight Frank suggests that House prices are set to rise by over 20 per cent in the five years to the end of 2020.

The estate agency group says that last year it correctly predicted the slowdown in UK house price growth in 2015.

In the prime London and prime country markets, it predicts higher transaction costs will continue to weigh on activity and price growth in 2016 as the market absorbs stamp duty.

Prime central London prices are forecast to rise by 2 per cent in 2016 and by 20.5 per cent cumulatively by 2020.

The estate agency sees the risk that UK interest rates rise more rapidly than expected or that the global economy suffers a notable slowdown in activity as the biggest threats to the UK housing market.
