London Luxury Homes’ Average Value Exceeds 2 Million Pounds

The average value of luxury homes in central London surpassed 2 million pounds ($3 million) for the first time in the second quarter as more purchasers competed for a smaller number of properties on the market, Marsh & Parsons Ltd. said.

Home values in prime locations from Chelsea to Kensington rose 9.3 percent in the 12 months through June, the London-based property broker said in a report today. The number of buyers seeking homes in the most expensive districts climbed 11 percent from three months earlier, while residences available for sale declined by 14 percent.
