Houses for sale in London near transport links 'are most popular'

People looking to buy houses for sale in London are likely to be checking out the nearest transport links, a report has suggested.

According to Santander's latest findings, being able to access transport is one of the most important factors in choosing where to live for those in the capital.

While only 13 per cent of respondents in the country stated transport as a key factor for choosing their property, 31 per cent of Londoners said it was important.

The survey also found that across Britain 39 per cent of homebuyers considered being able to live close to family and friends to be most important to them, while this figure dropped to 33 per cent for those in London.

Andy Smith at Santander said: "It is revealing that the capital is the only place in the UK where friends and family aren't the top factor governing where they live."

Londoners instead cited work-related reasons as the most important element in choosing where to buy a home.

Recent findings from Zoopla.co.uk revealed that the average price of a residential house in London is £413,350.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800097377-ADNFCR
