Crossrail News: Average Property Prices Along The Elizabeth Line

July 13, 2022

The Crossrail opening has finally come, and with it, buyer competition continues to surge around many stops along the line.

With interest rates on the up and the cost of living crisis not yet behind us, many Londonders are taking advantage of the new Crossrail connectivity and heading to the outer fringes of the line. According to recent research, properties in the vicinity of Heathrow Airport have increased in price by 12% on the 2018 peak, and up 41% up on the 2014 peak. To the west, Twyford and Taplow sold prices are up year-on-year by 8% and 10% respectively.

Areas with lower property values and rent prices that were previously poorly connected to the city centre are now providing more affordable housing options for commuters. The ongoing trend towards remote working continues to create a wider choice for residents of the capital, too.

Some stops along the line have seen property prices in the vicinity soar by over 100% in the last decade. Maryland station in Newham has experienced the biggest leap, going from an average of £233,500 in 2012, to £468,476 this year, while asking prices around the line’s furthest south-east reaches have shot up by 103% to £356,800.

Buyer competition exponentially higher

The upward pressure on asking prices has been driven by staggering increases in buyer competition in key Elizabeth Line pockets; in the last ten years, buyer numbers have increased the most around Abbey Wood, with buyer enquiries now nine times greater than they were in 2012.

From there, the next biggest increases can be seen in and around Romford, with Gidea Park buyer enquiries up 821% and Harold Wood 744% higher than a decade ago.

Chadwell Heath and Goodmayes then come in 4th and 5th for the areas with the most increased competition, shooting up by 663% and 660% respectively since 2012.

Renting along the Elizabeth Line

As property prices and buyer demand has increased dramatically at many points along the Elizabeth Line, so too have rental prices and competition for rental properties. The line’s western section has experienced the most significant increases.

The greatest rent price increases have occurred in Slough and Burnham, up 44% and 43% respectively. Meanwhile, Southall - renowned for its affordability - has experienced the largest increase in tenant competition, attracting over four times more tenant enquiries than a decade ago.

We’ve collated the latest property data from Rightmove to give you a snapshot of the current market conditions surrounding each of the new Crossrail stops along the line.
