Quick Move Now’s Managing Director, Danny Luke, commented:

In the last quarter of 2016, we have seen a significant shift of property slowdown from the north to the south. Increased time on market figures continue to highlight the slowdown in the Greater London and the South East.

Historically, there has always been a clear north-south divide between the best and worst places to sell, however, this steady trend is starting to diminish with Greater London making up nine of the twenty worst places to sell in March 2017.

Doug Shephard, director at Home.co.uk, added:

It’s really Central London that’s suffered the worst slowdown to date, but it seems to be spreading. The property market in the South East has also slowed but not yet by the same extent. What’s more is that rents are following house prices and in Greater London: they are now going down. Buy-to-let lest investment, wary of overbought London and SE, is heading North in search of better yields. So if the trend continues we are going to be seeing fewer Northern locations in the worst 20 and more in London and the South East.
