  1. Been lurking on this site for a very long time (almost 10 years I think) and I've found it a great source of information to explain the madness we've witnessed in the last 10 years. I've been looking at this corner of South West London, and couldn't find a thread to track it specifically - so here goes. Been renting in this area since 2010, pretty much straight after landing my first decently paid job in London. It was a relatively undiscovered part, living in the shadows of its more famous cousin (Wimbledon) though has gone absolutely mental in terms of rental and sale prices ever since the Help To Buy scheme came in. Prices have effectively doubled since about 2011 onwards in some areas and they still seem to represent some semblance of value, when you compare it to nearby Wimbledon. Have been tracking it for the last 12 months and the froth seems to blowing off finally after a period of relentless price rises. Housing stock is generally 1930s 'Blay' style housing, with 2 pockets dominating. One is what's called the Apostles - 12 parallel streets within 0.5m of the station which are filled with rows of really narrow terraced houses, that are very popular with commuters and young families (though strangely are not in the catchment areas for any schools). The other area and what we're looking in is the streets off Grand Drive, that runs for about 1 mile from the station before you hit Cannon Hill Common. Anyway, just thought I'd say hi after all this time and see if anyone else is looking in the same area or has any information. Estate agents are still in ramping mode as there's rumours of Crossrail2 coming through this area - which will no doubt take prices even higher from where they are!
