Good evening and welcome.

My point is simple: It's been three long years since I moved to this leafy glade affectionately known as 'the village' as the first step to fiscal freedom and world domination and I have to say, things ain't quite panned out as planned. Oh sure, we have Forest Hill Day and there's a new aquarium on the way and a new flower shop has opened and all that, but what about the sponduliks?

When are we gonna make some serious wedge, suffice to park up the speedboat I won on bullseye a few years back?

I thank you.

Well, they are supposed to be starting work on the East London Line... I know we've heard that one before but it does look as if it might be for real this time.
If it gets a good start and looks as if it will be finished 2009 then perhaps there'll be some movement next year.
Been fairly flat from about 2-3 years across most of London.
House price rises are no use though unless (a) you are moving, (b) your place has gone up more than elsewhere...

I have been looking to buy in the area for the past 6 months (now nearly completed) and have seen the average price indicator for a one bed flat go from 145,000 to 151,00 on the find a property website. The website is not entirely accurate but this does show a definite upward movement of sorts in the house prices.

I can not see how the East London will not lead to a growth in house prices. The area, the investment (i.e. the new Sainsbury's) and the the new transport links definitely make this an upcoming part of London!!!!

Have just been down the town centre on this glorious afternoon and amidst the less attractive shops we really do have some crackers - one which does a particularly good line in organic baked goods and two others doing ladies' and gentlemans' clothes. Fingers crossed they do OK and are here to stay.
Things are picking up I think. For SE London, surely the most unfashionable quadrant of the city, FH is relatively hip and whilst in the shadow of E Dulwich is glacially cool in comparison to Catford, Sydenham, Lewisham or Brockley. May the renaissance continue!
