We're proud to announce that our inaugural Country Homes Exhibition will take place on Thursday 14 April 2016 at the Millennium Hotel in Mayfair.

At a time when the average house price in London is £500,000 compared with just over £185,000* in England and Wales, more Londoners than ever before are looking to cash in their London property in favour of the value offered beyond the M25.  According to a report from the Office of National Statistics in 2014, 273,000 Londoners left the Capital to set up home elsewhere.  Capitalising on the increased demand from London buyers for properties located beyond the M25, Humberts’ Country Homes Exhibition will take place in Mayfair in Central London and will specifically target Londoners who are interested in finding out more about buying a property in the country.

Ian Westerling, Managing Director of Humberts, commented on the demand for such an event: “London property has hit record prices and coupled with the natural flow of families moving out of the capital in favour of green spaces, schools and the desire to achieve a more relaxed way of life, there is a great appetite for more information about country living.  This is exactly why we have decided to launch our first Country Homes Exhibition.  We intend to provide information to interested buyers on quality country properties ranging from small cottages to weekend seaside boltholes right up to country manors and estates and located in the South East, South West, Midlands and Yorkshire.”
