Highbury is a great area in which to purchase property right now.

To accommodate growing interest in the area, Highbury has seen the beginnings of regeneration, with local amenities popping up in the last year or so. Buy now to take advantage of growing yields and growing demand, before prices catch up to them.

4.8% Forest Gate

A hidden gem, just outside Stratford, Forest Gate is a fantastic place to buy right now. With Crossrail opening here shortly, the area already benefits from a trainline taking you into Liverpool Street in under 20 minutes and Stratford's many transport connections within walking distance. Forest Gate is well connected, with shops, restaurants, pubs and plenty of green spaces all within reach, making it a desirable place to live for people looking to move slightly further out of Central London in search of a slightly slower pace of life.

5.1% Peckham Rye

A vibrant, bustling town, Peckham has been a popular spot for years. It's slightly tamer suburb, Peckham Rye, has now become a popular spot for young professionals and families looking to move a bit further out of the city centre. Within a great location for commuting but offering a bit more space for your money in terms of property, it's an up and coming area that will soon be the next East Dulwich Village. It's a great time to invest in Peckham Rye before this southern secret becomes common knowledge, so get in before the crowd.

4% Acton

Acton is a great area to invest right now. Having long attracted young professional couples and families, looking for that community feel and leafy green spaces, this area of West London is always going to be attractive - especially for slightly bigger properties to accommodate this type of renter. Sat on the new Crossrail line, close to Central London but also so close to the hub of industry growing around White City, Acton is an area to watch and definitely to invest in this year.
