June 6, 2018

If you’re looking to invest in property this spring, you need to be aware of the latest data.

Using latest sold prices throughout London, read on to see where we think you should be looking to invest right now.


3.8% Camden

A popular area to live in London, Camden caters for everyone, from students, renters, first-time buyers commuting into Central London and those looking to Camden’s sought-after neighbouring areas for peaceful streets away from the bustle of the city. With great transport links, Regent’s Park and the canal ways nearby and a busy high street handy for locals, Camden is a great area with a lot of personality. Ever-popular, the area offers good yields as a buy-to-let investment hotspot right now, especially if you were looking to short-let your property on Airbnb for some time too.

4.7% Forest Gate

Forest Gate’s house prices and yields are increasing as time moves on. Still sat at much lower values than other areas of London, invest here and get much more for your money whilst you can. Crossrail will open here next year to add to the ease of transport available both here and at nearby Stratford. Stratford also offers shopping centres, restaurants, amenities and green spaces, helping to make Forest Gate an attractive area which is on the up!

3.9% Forest Hill

Sat in South London, Forest Hill is surrounded by areas which have flown up in value over the last few years but has remained reasonably priced itself. Offering better yields than its neighbours, the area has everything you need in the way of transport, with both the Overground straight to Shoreditch and Canada Water and a train direct into London Bridge and Victoria. Close to Dulwich, Peckham and Lewisham, there’s plenty around here in terms of shopping, amenities and entertainment making it a popular area, and a good one to invest.

A slower paced and community-spirited area, this is a popular area offering good transport links on the District Line and on trains into Waterloo. With good schools, this is a popular area for families and a great place to invest in property.
