Much has been made of the EU referendum and its affect on the UK's housing market and now a map has been released showing how London's house prices have faired in the weeks following the vote.

Although at first glance it appears we're in a city where house price drops are edging out price rises (according to these statistics, house prices in the Camden borough have actually risen post-vote), it's worth reading the article in its entirety and to reflect on the bigger picture.

The BREXIT vote happened just as we were entering the traditional summer lull in property, when house hunters pause to enjoy the summer months. Prices naturally dip during the holiday period as demand temporarily wanes.

House prices at the time of the referendum were also at some of their highest ever in London, with many already levelling out and naturally rebalancing.

Lastly, the stamp duty change earlier in the year pertaining to second home purchases has had a 'ripple' effect, with property investors and pied-à-terre buyers giving their purchasing actions more thought and that has, in turn, affected buying momentum.

By all means take a look at the map but always follow up 'top line' reports and statistics with a conversation with a local estate agent, who will know the real-time state of the London property market where you live.

We're approaching the autumn season - a time when buying and selling activity gathers pace once more, so expect this map to look slightly different if it is compiled again at the end of 2016.
