Property prices in central London will grow more than 23% over the next 5 years, however prime markets in commuter zones could exceed this growth as more people move out of central London.

The suburbs have become the first step for buyers looking to make the move out of the capital, according to estate agents Savill's. Getting more for their money, still having local conveniences on their doorsteps and good schools are a driver which encourages families to look further afield.

It also marks the highest figure since electronic records began more than 26 years ago.
