Did anybody see it ?

They were talking about the possible property boom, in E. London due to winning the 2012 Olympics.

The opinion of the "property experts" was that its already too expensive in Stratford, as rental yields would be too low.

But did think there may be a bit of mileage left in places like Leyton and Hackney.

Stratford was already booming because of the Eurostar station - I'm not sure how much of a difference the Olympics will make.

Stratford is a souless place in my opinion - a dreary shopping centre on an island surrounded by busy roads and that's pretty much it. You'd be better off in Bow, Leytonstone or even Upton Park.

Stratford so-called High St is the biggest laugh - it's a mile longish stretch of dual carriageway with none of the attributes of a typical high st (like shops for example). Plenty of new build flat developments going/gone up alongside it though.

Thank you. Stratford is already too revolting. Been there. Done that... tried not the get the postcard!

Exactly - who wants to live on a building site for the next 7 years?

Stratford town centre is very menacing at night and has the most hideous looking 1960s shopping centre. The Olympics cannot change the fact that 50% of people who live in Newham of working age are economically inactive (a scandal!) and this will always mean that crime/anti social behaviour in the area will be high!

Most of the new builds are grossly overpriced (e.g. £280k for a 2bed at Barratt's Stratford square development) and are located next to traffic choked roads. Once they build the 3,000 flats planned at the new shopping city there will be a gross oversupply of this very cheap looking new build.

Stick to Leytonstone or Wanstead if you want to live near the Olympics - only 5 minutes by tube from Stratford without the lowlife!

Sydney prices were not affected by the Olympics(2000) in effect during the 12 month period they fell during the Olympics and didn't pick up until a drop in interest rates in early 2001. Its possible prices may rise after the crash depending how big the crash is and how long it lasts for. 2012 could be when we come out of the doldrums. Was watching Bloomberg Manhatten prices in some parts have dropped 30 % in one quarter.

This crash could be the big one....1929 was a holiday in comparison.......My suggestion take a good holiday so you have at least one good memory.
