East London house prices up 26% since 2012 victory

There has, however, been a mixed performance in property prices with Stratford, the home of the Olympic Stadium, seeing only a 3% increase in average prices, slower than any of the other postal districts.

Suren Thiru, housing economist, Lloyds TSB, said:

"Some areas close to the Olympic Park have experienced a sharp rise in property prices since London’s successful bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Part of this rise is likely to have been due to an increased interest in property in these locations from both buyers and investors as a result of the associated regeneration taking place. The picture, however, is mixed. Looking forward, property prices across East London are likely to receive a boost from the legacy of improved infrastructure and transport links left by the London 2012."
