Fast Track to London


David Fell
Research Analyst

David Fell, Research Analyst at Hamptons International says:

“London has grown by steadily swallowing up neighbouring towns and villages. Ruislip, Harrow Barking and Croydon were all once distinct towns that now find themselves part of the Capital. Their history means they have direct rail links into the heart of Central London which cut straight though London’s inner suburbs. These connections mean it’s quicker to get to some Zone Six suburbs from Central London than it is to many parts of Zone Two.

“London’s housing market has been shaped by both journey times and distance from Central London. While the largest house price gap is found between Zone One and Two, prices drop by an average of £86,000 between each subsequent zone. For house hunters on tight budgets it can pay to look one zone further out where house prices are on average 17% cheaper but journey times into the centre are little different.”
