The London housing market hasn’t looked this bad since 2009, with the capital’s housing prices posting the first annual decline in almost a decade, according to the Nationwide Building Society.

Average house prices posted 2 percent annual gain in September, according to Bloomberg, in comparison to a year ago when the annual gain was 5 percent.

“London has seen a particularly marked slowdown,” said Nationwide’s chief economist Robert Gardner to Bloomberg.

The cause of the slow is generally blamed on Brexit, however analysts claim there is cause for optimism: GfK says consumer confidence is on the upswing, while Lloyd’s Bank saw business confidence rise from its lowest point.
