Luton Avg Price Breaks 1/4 Mil Barrier

Recommended Posts

Anywhere with such good links into London have already risen, look at some of the pits in South East London, for 350k you struggle to get a decent 2 bed, likes of Catford and Grove Park etc.

And the average Luton house, a former council house. God if that is the average house in Luton it must be bloody grim there. In some places that sort of house would come up on page 20 out of 20 on a rightmove search when listed in price order.

Never have I seen such a gap between rural house prices and those in urban centres of employment near London like Luton. The average house in Luton would be bottom of the pile in most rural areas of the north. In my area the last page on rightmove is small stone cottages or former council housing like the one I linked in Luton.

That looks better than many houses in Luton... many council estates up there were privatised back in the Thatcher revolution and have since gone even further down market, especially with the new business models promoted by the Tories when the factories were being closed (for our own good) and now for eg drug dealing and prostitution are the predominant industries. (I have friends from Luton and they comfirm this view on a regular basis)

Luton is also a good place to get a smack if you go out for a drink or two.

ps.. no house in Luton has any business being priced over £250k, or for that matter £50K (3x the local wage)
