Fewer People are Leaving London for Greener Pastures and More are Returning Once upon a time, the trend was for young couples living in London to abandon their urban lifestyles in exchange for a more rural location, complete with a pair of Wellies, trusty family dog and a long commute into work. But currently, London is experiencing a surging number of people choosing to stay in the capital to raise their families. In some cases, there is even a reverse migration of empty nesters looking to come back to the Big Smoke.

Another factor underpinning the influx of families to the city is that many affluent young families have two breadwinners with equally important careers. With both partners needing to commute and be near the office, a central location makes financial sense as well as being a time saving measure.

Young Families In fact, with stressful, expensive and time-consuming commutes sited as the primary reason for families to remain in London, many people are in fact trying to move closer to the centre of the City rather than withdrawing to its outskirts. With public transport so much more readily available in the capital, many families are giving up cars to walk, cycle or catch the tube to work, which also saves on ever-rising petrol costs.

Such couples might look for modern conveniences in a property like energy efficiency, easy maintenance outdoor space and added levels of security such as concierge services or underground parking. Flats in buildings like the one Northfields currently is offering for sale in Hillcrest Road, would fit the bill nicely. For couples approaching retirement, these types of properties would allow them to follow dreams of more leisure time, or even more travel abroad, knowing that their property is safe and looked after.

Empty Nesters For those people whose children are fledging the nest, The Evening Standard recently reported on this change in returning to London is a viable option once again. Many trends as seen in a YouGov survey released last week. The couples in their late 40’s or 50’s who moved to locations report revealed that the capital’s core population has in the South East while their families were young in order soared by more than 500,000 to 7.6 million during the to buy larger homes are now returning to London. Again, past decade. This population surge has been buoyed up being freed from the commute is cited as a big motivator by mainly middle class couples and families who are no for these home movers, but being released from the longer dreaming of trading urban convenience for a rural burden of caring for high maintenance homes and idle. gardens is also a factor for many.

Green Space Staying in London does not mean that green space is lost with the abundance of parks in London. However, for those buyers who are looking to move back into London from areas outside the capital, the neighbourhood will be as big a factor as the property itself. With areas like West London being awarded for its green spaces and areas which maintain a community, village feel, like Pitshanger, London and Ealing in particular has a great deal to offer these people seeking a country-feel within the bounds of the M25.
