Almost half a million Londoners now are millionaires

According to a new study, almost half a million Londoners are now "millionaires on real estate," as the number of houses worth £1 million across the country has grown.

According to the Zoopla website, the capital has a staggering number of properties worth at least £1 million - approximately 430,720 out of 770,000.

The postal index with the largest amount of real estate, worth a million pounds, was called SW6, covering the districts of Fulham and Parson's Green with 14,020 objects. It is followed by NW3, covering Belsize Park and Hampstead with 12,500 such houses, followed by the N1, which includes Islington and part Shorditch with 11,311 houses.

Top 10 London districts where the number of houses with cost about £ 1 million and more is the largest:

Westminster - 54,231

Kensington and Chelsea - 45,366

Camden - 37.908

Wandsworth - 30,686

Hammersmith and Fulham - 30,019

Barnet - 24,719

Richmond-upon-Thames - 23,322

Islington (Islington) - 22,973

Lambeth - 17,701

Southwark - 17,428

According to Zoopla, currently in the UK there are 768 553 houses at a price of not less than £1 million. That is, in comparison with the results of a similar study for August 2016, these figures grew by 22.95%. Since that time, the number of owners of expensive houses has grown by 143,476 people.

In addition to the fact that the largest accumulation of millionaires in real estate ('property millionaires') is noted in London and in the southeast of England, the study also showed that in Guildford, Surrey, the number of properties worth a million is bigger than in whole throughout Wales.

Guildford was named the first in the ranking by the number of objects of expensive property outside of London, 5,889 houses in it were estimated at £1 million. As a result of the latest study it was found that Wales has 2,223 houses worth £1 million or more.

Zoopla published the results of the study to mark the launch of its new project, a kind of real estate calculator that will inform the owners of homes about the moment when the value of their property can reach a mark of £1 million.
