Real Estate Agents are leaving London in record numbers.
Some are worried about the impact of Brexit on their business.
But is it just the start?
The rise of the Homeowners Association and the rise of local communities is putting pressure on the sector.
In 2017, the number of people aged 55-64 renting was 4.4 million, up by 0.5% on the previous year.
That compares with a 2.1% increase in the number renting to 60-64.
In the past three years, the proportion of older people in London has risen from 12.3% to 16.1%.
The number of new owners has also increased, with 1.7 million of them entering the market in the past year, a rise of more than 20%.
The number of owner-occupiers is up from 1.5 million in 2016.
This is not to say that older people are not staying in their homes.
The number has increased by just over 2% in the last three years.
However, there is a big difference between the number leaving London and those who stay.
According to the Home Owners Association, only a third of people who live in their home for more than a year are still renting out the unit.
And, the majority of those who have left are women.
The group also believes that more young people are choosing to live in the capital, and are more likely to have mortgages.
However, some believe that the rise in owner-occupied homes is the result of the economic crisis, as the number selling homes to foreign buyers was down.
A number of reasons are being put forward for the rise, with many blaming Brexit and the impact it has had on the London economy.
However, a recent study by the London School of Economics says that Brexit is not the sole reason for the surge.
It also found that the increase in home sales is not solely the result for foreign buyers, with other factors, including inflation and low interest rates, also contributing.
But the Home owners Association is not worried about a possible drop in demand from younger buyers.
They say that younger people are being lured away by cheap rents and the prospect of a more affordable city.
The association has called on Londoners to stay and not to leave.
«If Londoners are not getting the housing that they want, it is not their fault.
It is the fault of government policy,» said Andrew Taylor, the association’s president.
