House prices have risen £69 a day for five years – but the borough remains the most affordable in the capital.

Today’s research by Savills shows an average home in the capital has increased from £292,284 to £483,803 – despite salaries growing by just 54p a day.

In Barking and Dagenham, the average house price is £289,000.

Frances Clacy, analyst at Savills Residential Research said: “Over the past five years, Barking and Dagenham has been the third-best performing London borough in terms of house price growth.

“Even though house prices have increased on average by £69 each day for the last five years (the equivalent of 78pc over the period), the borough remains the most affordable in London.”
