The Times on the East London Line effect

Those cats at the Times' property section Bricks & Mortar cannot get enough of Brockley's good stuff.

In "the first of a two-part special" they look at the impact of the East London Line, predicting that the main beneficiaries in terms of house prices will be south, rather than north of the river.

Here's the map of the route they provide, with quotes from a Forest Hill estate agent claiming it is having a major impact on the market and a New Cross agent playing down the likely impact, on the basis that the East London Line is not a new idea in New Cross.

They claim that the average price of a two-bed flat near Brockley station is £325,000, compared with an average of £250,000 for Honor Oak and £240,000 for Forest Hill, which seems to tally with the experiences of a few BC readers we know, who have have had to move further south in search of a larger property.
