Yet how expensive is too expensive? Here at the FT, we have mapped the UK capital to show how affordable London boroughs are for first-time buyers.

The average price in London is about 800k AUD for apartments or $1.1 million for a semi/terrace house. The overall average is $1 million AUD
Actually you can still buy a flat for under 600k...in some less desirable areas ...it will take you about 30 min to get to the key city stations..
Yep, that's just the average. In Sydney it's 700k for units so it makes London look like good value
