James Diaper, head of sales in Hampstead for estate agents company Savills, described the £5 million plus market in 2021 as “very strong”. 

He said: “The desire for outside space fuelled a lot of sales last year, and is expected to be a key driver amongst people’s property searches throughout 2022. Despite the ongoing easing of restrictions, the working from home position is here to stay, meaning a good-sized property with flexibility will remain part of buyers search criteria and continue to drive sales at the top end of the market. 

“In fact, we have seen a number of new buyers register with us since the new year with budgets upwards of £3million, as well as an increased interest in properties in need of partial renovation, which is likely to be driven by limited stock.”
