This is not a good thing, housing is a massively over inflated bubble. We need to get back to making thing as a nation not selling over priced houses to each other.
Just stop eating so many avocadoes and having so many TV subscriptions then you too can afford a property :) ...right?
It's absolutely bonkers in Harlow for property we just sold our house in Harlow was going to stay kids in school etc but the houses which are 200k more are only marginally bigger it wasn't worth getting in more debt. We have ended up going out half hour further now in Braintree and got a semi with half an acre plot for the price of 4 bed in Harlow. When we came to Harlow 7 years ago houses were affordable now they are coming into London prices. £600k for newhall house with a paddling pool sized garden lmao.
Benjamin, I can understand your rationale. However, what you describe is precisely what is happening to the market on Harlow. With the growth of hybrid working, people are selling on London and moving here for similar reasons to you. Harlow, with all its strategic advantages - 25 minutes by train to Central London, 2 accesses to M11, Stansted Airport, etc - is still comparatively cheap when compared to Hertford, Bishops Stortford and Epping. I have said for some time that the price gap will close. If the Town Centre is truly regenerated this will benefit the town’s economy, but will be another driver for creating more housing demand. It is the market. In the current environment, we might see a slow down, but the underlying fundamentals are pretty solid.
