 The race to buy UK real estate close to the Olympic venues in and around Stratford, east London has already began with agents in the vicinity witnessing an increase in interest from UK investors.
John Wriglesworth, a housing economist with property website Hometrack, was quick to talk up the effect of the Olympics on London’s property market: “East London will see huge economic benefits, including regeneration projects, new developments and the creation of the Olympic Village, all of which will impact positively on house prices in the surrounding area.” A recent Halifax survey concluded that housing in areas close to the Olympic venues would experience price rises well above the national average.
