In December 2016, The Office for National Statistics reported that house prices across the UK saw a year-on-year rise of 7.2 per cent. These figures are promising for the property market, and if the trend continues, the average home in the UK will increase in value by £22,000 in the next year. But what’s in store for West Hampstead? Over the last decade, local prices have seen a rise of 93.2 per cent, equivalent to £37,120 per year. Terraces tell a different story, having seen a rise of £76,280 per year or 113.9 per cent over the period. As the chart shows, all owners have benefitted from price rises, but some more than others.
