The analytical website Zoopla reported that there are 768,553 "homeowners millionaires" in the UK alone. This indicator rose by 23% compared to the previous year. The majority of owners of property, which costs more than £1 million, live in England.
The clear leader in expensive real estate was London, where there are 430,720 homes which cost more than £1 million. In other words, every twentieth resident of the capital owns property valued at a million pounds.
Cities near the capital also are distinguished by rich homeowners: in Guildford, there are 5,889 people, that is, every 24th resident of the town. In Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire and Westminster, the greatest concentration of "property millionaires" is noted. Zoopla reports that in Westminster, the share of real estate that costs £1 million and above is 58%. The percentage of homeowners millionaires is slightly less in the Chiltern Hills area - 49%, but the average cost of houses in this area often exceeds the minimum mark of £1 million.
