Stratford House Prices Expected To Rise

Recommended Posts

Countrywide research director Johnny Morris told HuffPost UK: “Rezoning helps with the marketing of property developments, but it is the rental market which is likely to be affected more quickly.

“Here we can expect there to be increased demand, which ordinarily prompts higher rental values.”

Yes because paying an extra £220 a year on a zone1-3 travelcard vs a zone 1-2 or paying 40p more for a single fare is all that has prevented people from buying a one bed flat for £400k in Stratford rather than in say Bow.

Comical.

A bit like the folks buying homes in Shenfield because of Crossrail when no one with any sense would use Crossrail to go to London from there as the Greater Anglia fast services take nearly half an hour less to the City without having to suffer 13 stops on the way.

You say that and I'd agree.

But over Christmas I listened to 2 grown men agreeing with eachother it was sensible to buy new £20k cars because the road tax was only £30 a year rather than £140 on the old model which you could pick up for £13k

Maybe they were thinking of keeping the car for 64 years?
