It’s quickly moved into April so it’s time to consult our Yield Map once again to work out where the best places are around London to purchase a property this month, by expected yield. East London is still the strongest prospect, with both cheaper property and higher yields, but there are always pockets in any area, so find out which area might work for you.


3.8% Harringay

Sitting just above Finsbury Park, Harringay is a sought-after location, offering improved yields this month.

Leyton is a fantastic area to buy right now, capped the next Walthamstow in terms of property price growth and popularity. Sat in a convenient location on the Central Line, Leyton gets you to Westfields Stratford in a matter of minutes and Tottenham Court Road in under 30 minutes. New gyms, shops and amenities have been popping up around the area in the last year or so, and the Leyton High Road seems to have a new pub, café or shop every time we visit! Property prices are very reasonable and demand is growing by the day. If you’re thinking East, Leyton may be the place for you.

3.4% Shepherd's Bush

A hive of activity, Shepherd's Bush is a great place to invest right now for so many reasons.

The ever-popular Westfields is situated here, as well as a hive of industry, since the BBC vacated their building. As new businesses are moving in, the need for properties to rent goes up, to a slightly more affluent audience, so it’s definitely a good time to consider buying here.
