As the year draws towards a close, we once again consult our Yield Map to explore the best areas to invest in property in London right now. The map auto updates with the latest property sold prices and, offering really strong rental yields, these four areas are just some of the emerging spots where it may be good to invest right now.
4.5% South Hampstead
Sat within the Borough of Camden, South Hampstead sits amongst some of London's most sought-after areas, such as West Hampstead and St John's Wood. Within easy reach of Regent's Park and Hampstead Heath, the village-like feel of this area offers a bit of R&R from the rush of Central London, but without the pricetag which comes with property in the neighbouring areas. Our Yield Map shows a surge in interest here in recent months, making this a great area to invest right now.
The area of Deptford has seen yields rise considerably in recent years. As more and more residential property pops up here, local amenities, bars and restaurants have also appeared, putting the area on the radar due to cheaper prices and a younger, trendier crowd moving into the area. With quick transport links into Central London, the area is only going to become more popular so now is a great time to invest in property here.
With a spot on the widely anticipated Crossrail route and a short distance from Heathrow, Hayes is an area you should definitely look to invest in property right now. Developers have been produced lots of new real estate since the confirmation of Crossrail so it isn't hard to find a property here to your taste. Just 20 minutes from Central London by train, Hayes offers a community-led lifestyle, with many young professionals and families settling here.
5.8% East Ham
With some great East London yield hotspots, it's no surprise that East Ham has risen in popularity throughout the year. Sat on the District and Hammersmith & City lines, the area gives quick and easy access into London, whilst giving residents cheaper property options. With Victorian terraces, a close knit community, good parks and plenty of Outstanding Schools, the area is perfect for families looking for the right area.
With West Ham's old stadium awaiting redevelopment, this is just one of the many new property development popping up to entice people into moving into the area.
