Finsbury Park tops the list for affordable homes
Convenient transport links are a clear priority for many new buyers. According to the Evening Standard, the following top five areas in London are not only well connected by public transport, but have affordable house prices, making them ideal for those trying to get on the property ladder.
Finsbury Park tops the list for affordability and great transport connections. The North London area has benefitted from a £220 million scheme that has seen a cinema, gym and new shops open. Finsbury Park has a National Rail station, an Underground station and two bus stations, making it extremely well connected to other parts of the capital.
Other locations that offer value for money and great transport links include Deptford, which has direct links to London Bridge; Farringdon is centrally located and has both a National Rail station and is served by three tube lines. Barking has excellent links to the rest of London, with an Underground, Overground and National Rail station, while Brixton is just a few stops away from Victoria and Green Park on the Victoria line.
According to data from the TUC, the average commute in London is 1 hour 21 minutes, 23 minutes longer than the average for the UK, which shows why getting better than average transport links in London is so important. Previous research has shown London buyers are willing to pay a hefty premium of £43,000 for properties near to a Tube or railway station, as this will shorten their daily commute.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman at ludlowthompson, says: “Location and transport connections are of upmost importance to Londoners. So it is great to see vibrant areas with excellent transport links in London, offering buyers value for money.”
“Finsbury Park is just one part of London that has seen significant redevelopment in the past couple of years. This regeneration, along with its fantastic transport links have made it a desirable area for first-time buyers.”
