“As the primary mode of traversing the capital, the ongoing improvements in rail links are continuously changing the London property landscape, in terms of which areas are the most in demand among UK buyers,” he said.

Quirk said he expected homeowners living in Crossrail-connected areas will see a significant value increase in their property over the next few years. He advised those looking to sell to consider holding out until Crossrail is up and running.
