Country houses for sale

VIDEO: Is now the time to buy a property in London?

Country Life held a live video chat with Savills on our Instagram page, @countrylifemagazine, on Monday 9 November.

Lindsay Cuthill, head of Savills’ Country House department and Claire Reynolds — co-head of Prime Central London — joined Country Life’s Rosie Paterson to answer your questions. We focused on the property market in London, but also looked at some wider issues in the market.

Rural estate agents have been talking through the summer about the increasing interest they’ve had from urban buyers looking to move out to the country. But has that translated into any changes in the capital? And if so, has that created an opportunity for those who wish to buy now, with a view to life in our cities returning to normal in months to come?

Lindsay’s years of expertise and Claire’s experience overseeing Marylebone, Mayfair, Westminster, St John’s Wood, Maida Vale, Primrose Hill and Hampstead for Savills ensured that they brought a huge amount of knowledge to share.

For anyone who missed it, we’ve embedded the video to watch again here — or you can watch it on our Instagram IGTV page.
