Stamp Duty grow likely to profit the Northern real estate market

Number of £1m homes to triple by 2030

Across the UK one in 20 properties could have a price tag of £1m+ by 2030, with 25% of property in the capital hitting the million mark in 14 years time. According to a report by Santander, this number is forecast to rise to more than 70% in the London boroughs of Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster. Throughout the UK the number is set to triple until 2030. To put this in context, the forecast would mean that around one in every 20 (5.1%) British homes will be worth £1m or more by 2030.
