House Price Crash Forum

is anyone following market trends in stratford?

a few months ago this area was out of reach but in the last 6 weeks or so the number of houses on the market has nearly doubled and there have been a lot of price cuts

I suppose its all relative - I am young enough to remember when you could buy houses in St Ratford for £60,000. I really cannot imagine why you would pay £350k+ for a house there - when there are much nicer areas a few stops east on the central line with similar prices.

Saying that the new builds are even more expensive than the houses.

I am sure many love it - but I could and would never live there! And I don't really see much evidence in terms of asking prices of there being any sanity. £350k for this grim place - no thanks!

Stratford has decent public transport links but other than that, it has little going for it. I don't see much happening in the future. One of the first places that should start to see a crash.

There's money piling into the Olympic park.
