It's an excellent time to buy in London, experts say

The Evening Standard’s Homes & Property Editor Janice Morley explains why it’s currently an excellent time to buy a home in London. 

Having spoken to property experts, Janice says the interest rates are stable and mortgage lenders are once again happy to lend. 

Though traditionally the general election tends to usher in a period of instability in the market, Janice thinks the outcome will largely only affect those living in homes worth over £2 million. 

Janice also explains why, with better transport links and the coming of Crossrail, zone three has most definitely become the new zone two.
