Millionaires’ Row

While much uncertainty remains in property market in general, there is one area that is showing more than just the green shoots of recovery. The market for million pound houses rose by a staggering 58 per cent in 2010, showing every sign of heading back to levels of sales not seen since the economic crash.

An impressive spacious detached family home located in a popular residential road just a few hundred yards from Sunninghill Village Centre which offers a great selection of local shopping facilities.

Research carried out by Large Mortgage Loans  into the million pound property market shows there is much to be optimistic about.

The detailed research shows that for the first time since 2007 million pound property sales have made up more than 1 per cent of total property sales in Great Britain. In 2010 726,976 properties were sold across the country and 1.02 per cent of those were sold for a million pounds or more. To put this into perspective, in 2009 only 0.70 per cent of the 670,793 properties sold tipped the million pound mark while in 2008 750,926 properties were sold of which 0.71 per cent cost £1 million or more.

If you are entering the million pound house market as a buyer or seller, there is no better time than now. As an increasing number of premier properties become available, more buyers are clearly again on the look-out for their dream home. Here’s a guide to help you look for the million pound property and you can see we have done very well with two top ten entries.
