This is an interesting article discussing the impact of Crossrail on the property market. On the one hand, estate agents, property owners and developers stand to benefit, and I have certainly seen purchasers view Crossrail in a favourable light. On the hand, renters are likely to feel the pinch and Crossrail could become yet another hurdle to those first time buyers desperately trying to get that foot on that property  ladder. With Crossrail 2 now on the table I am sure that property owners, renters and first time buyers alike will be carefully monitoring the effects.
