What is the average cost of housing in London?

If you are thinking about moving to London, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing:

"Housing costs are definitely higher here, significantly so. To rent a 2-bed apartment in a central location, you have to count with at least £400 per week," added another person living in London.

"I left the US 14 years ago, so it's hard to say. But, I'd estimate that when I moved to this area, I paid about 75% more in rent than I had been doing in the US," explained one expat living in London.
