Average cost of first-time buyers homes soar by £160,000 in London

For many first-time buyers, London seems completely unattainable as the cost of an average first-time buyer home reaches £522,105. Despite these prices, demand for first-time buyer homes in the capital remains stronger than ever.

Despite these prices, demand for first-time buyer homes in the capital remains stronger than ever.

The government’s Help-to-Buy scheme is helping some Londoners to get a food on the ladder and is fuelling this high level of demand, but even in the cheapest boroughs, buyers are looking at a minimum price of  £230,000.

Interestingly, estate agent eMoov’s analysis of Land Registry data reveals more than 90% of boroughs have had the average price paid by first-time buyers and the average cost of a first-time buyer home has increased by at least £100,000 in just four years.

Both Croydon and Sutton are two of the most affordable yet well-respected areas to buy in, with average prices in Croydon sitting at £301,001 and £312,900 in Sutton.

We have made a huge effort to bring new-build homes to market for less than £300,000, ensuring that hard-working Londoners have a realistic chance to get onto the market.
