Benefit of downsizing to the city luring commuters back to the capital

London’s bustling nightlife and local amenities trump long commutes and the rising cost of train travel
Long distance commuters, it seems, have had enough of long train journeys and are increasingly downsizing to a life in the city. New research shows 9% of London leavers return to the capital within 3 years, up from just 3% in 2010*.
Long commutes and the steadily rising cost of train travel are diminishing the appeal of country living for many commuters.
In contrast, London still remains a top destination of choice for would-be homeowners. The bustling night life, world leading universities and proximity to amenities mean sellers can expect strong demand for their property.
Selling your property quickly for the maximum possible price is clearly the most important thing when you sell. The key to getting that is using a local agent with detailed knowledge of the area where you are selling, and of those buyers who could be in the market.
