Tue 05 Mar 2013
Strong sales of new homes in Surrey, Sussex, south London, Kent and Hampshire underline a positive start to the
new year for Taylor Wimpey.
Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey South West Thames, which is behind a number of developments of new
homes for sale in south London, Surrey, Kent, Sussex, and Hampshire, is reporting a positive start to the year in
line with independent predictions for a housing market recovery in 2013.
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has predicted that UK house prices will rise 2% this year,
and estate agent Savills is expecting prices of property for sale in London to rise 3% to 4.5% by 2014.
According to London property market monitor Marsh & Parsons, property wealth in London is spreading out of
traditional zones such as Kensington and Chelsea to neighbourhoods in the south and west of the capital such as
Balham and Clapham.
Meanwhile, popular commuter towns close to the city are also expected to benefit. Property website Propertywide
says that over the next five years the value of property in Surrey and Kent is expected to increase by as much as
21% in prime inner commuter zones and by 19% in the outer commuter zones.
With a fantastic choice of developments of new build homes in south London or in locations within easy
commuting distance of central London, Taylor Wimpey South West Thames is offering discerning buyers the
opportunity to take advantage of todays lower prices before the market rises. Taylor Wimpeys Plaza II in
Surbiton, Hinchley Park in Hinchley Wood near Esher and Kings Quarter in Chislehurst, for example, all lie within
close proximity of the capital with exceptional demand from savvy buyers reflecting their highly-desirable
locations in popular commuter zones.
95% of the properties at Hinchley Park are now sold, while 70% of the new homes at Plaza II and 55% of the
plots at Kings Quarter have already been snapped up.
Meanwhile, the housebuilder also has new developments coming soon in the up-and-coming south London
property hot spots of Wandsworth and Balham, which are already generating a huge level of interest from
