Stamford Hill 4%

Stamford Hill sits just North of Stoke Newington. It is a quieter area in London and popular with growing families and as Stoke Newington has grown, naturally more will move upward. There is plenty of transport links in Stamford Hill and you can find yourself in the city in just 30 minutes and due to being slightly further North you're bound to get a seat on this route. If the easy commute and low house prices aren't catching your attention then this mumsnet top secret is sure to, find yourself wandering Stamford Hill streets, then head towards Bethune Road where you will find the beautiful Allen Gardens.


Chigwell 4.9%

Heading slightly further afield than the yield map normally takes us, we are checking out Chigwell. Chigwell sits within Greater London and was once known as a rural farming location. The centre of Chigwell has a real village feel to it, yet you can still jump on the central line and be at Liverpool Street station in 36 minutes, giving you the best of both worlds! There are plenty of properties in the area, with quite a range available to you, from the old farmhouse to the new build flats and developments popping up. The fame of TOWIE put a spotlight on Chigwell, with many of the cast living in the area and frequenting the pubs and restaurants; one of the most popular being Sir Alan Sugars, Sheesh.

Twickenham 3.7%

As we gear up for England to take on Ireland at Twickenham this weekend for the rugby world cup warm-up games. It seems only fitting to check out the area on our yield map and see how attractive the area is for people to move to. Twickenham is a popular area with new and young families, the transport links are easily accessible and trains run frequently into the centre of London. There are plenty of boutique restaurants dotted around and beautiful old British pubs sitting on the Thames. If you're a foodie then head to the farmers market on Saturday. There are areas of Twickenham were property prices are high, but head to the south of Twickenham and property prices are more affordable.
