Croydon has a lot to offer
The London Borough of Croydon is a large suburban district in South London, England, and one of the boroughs that make up Greater London. It is situated 11.5 miles south of Charing Cross and has a population of around 392,000. Despite its suburban feel, Croydon is well connected to Central London with excellent transport links including East Croydon Station which is one of the busiest train stations in London outside of Zone 1.
The town is popular with homebuyers due to its good transport links and property prices.
Transport links help people feel at home
Croydon has excellent transport links, with two mainline railway stations (East Croydon and West Croydon) and a Tramlink network. This makes it an ideal location for commuters travelling into central London or the Surrey Hills.
No matter where you look for property, transport options are crucial, but this is even more important in and around London. Knowing you have many viable transport options so close to home is a great comfort for many people, and it is a massive factor in why there is so much demand for property in this part of South West London.
Croydon is an affordable option for property buyers
Property prices in Croydon are much lower than in neighbouring towns such as Sutton and Bromley, making it an affordable option for first-time buyers and those looking to downsize.
According to Rightmove, as of July 2022, house prices in Croydon are as follows;
"Properties in Croydon had an overall average price of £387,767 over the last year.
