Bucks is the best for commuters
Towns come top for those travelling into London
A new online tool has been launched to help people get on to the property ladder, which measures the cost and time per commute, average house prices per area and the amount of disposable income left over.
According to the tool, High Wycombe is the number one commuter town for London in which to live based on its commute time and cost and the affordability of homes there.
Amersham is ranked at number four, with Gerrards Cross named at number five. Other locations in the top 10 include Staines in Middlesex, Woking and Redhill in Surrey.
High Wycombe is seen as number one because of its 30 minute journey time to London, with travel costs of £4,180 per year and average house price of £346,197.
Amersham has a 34 minute journey time to the capital, travel costs of £3,368 each year and an average house price of £542,856, while Gerrards Cross has a 28 minute journey time, travel costs of £3,328 and a more expensive average house price of £792,177.
The study has been put together by website TotallyMoney.com, and Joe Gardiner of the company said: “We truly feel this tool will be a great help to anyone who is contemplating a move out to the suburbs.
“Living a short commute outside of London has always been a popular choice for many working in the capital, both for financial and lifestyle reasons.
“Finally there is a useful tool to help simplify the decision process.”
