London homebuyers scramble for a piece of the Games' legacy with properties near Olympic venues
Team GB’s stunning performance during the Olympics may be inspiring homebuyers to seek properties near Olympic venues. The presence of Olympic venues across London and beyond has led to increased desirability in certain areas.
Stephen Ludlow, Chairman of ludlowthompson, says: “The factor of having a world-class sporting facility nearby is only part of the appeal.
“The regeneration of entire areas has made them much more desirable to homebuyers, and we’re seeing a lot of interest in properties with Olympic connections.”
Here are a few properties for sale through ludlowthompson that are gold medal contenders for Olympics-inspired homebuyers.
