The vast majority of landlords believe property prices in the capital will increase, newly-published research indicates.
Figures released by the Young Group reveals that just over three-quarters (77 per cent) believe that by this time next year house values will either have remained at their current levels or be higher.
Across the UK as a whole, 51 per cent of property professionals are confident that prices will not fall.
Such a statistic represents an improvement from the 42 per cent of people who felt this way three months ago.
Chief executive Neil Young points out "that landlords are increasingly positive about the property market".
However, carrying out DIY – whether done by landlords, tenants or homeowners – can prove to be an effective way of increasing a home’s overall value.
Indeed, Andrew Leech, director of the National Home Improvement Council, recently claimed that improving the bathroom and kitchen can have a significant impact on the price of a property.
