London house prices are on average four times higher than the North East and the city’s properties are selling three times faster!
Hardly surprising then that many families are eager to make the move south in search of a more varied and vibrant lifestyle.
Moving to a renovated property
If you move to a renovated property on the outskirts of London, this could be one of the best decisions you and your family will ever make. The Bentley Priory development in Stanmore is just one of the options available from heritage developer City & Country. The area has the added bonus of being surrounded by beautiful countryside with the benefits of easy access to the centre of London. Living in a modernised, Grade-II Listed building surrounded by acres of parkland and finished with all top quality fittings Bentley Priory really is for the discerning buyer.
Properties in London
If you are searching for a property in London, the range of prices can vary dramatically from the centre to properties located at the end of the tube lines.
The benefit of living in one of these outer suburbs is not just the lower cost of property but also the opportunity for commuters to leave hectic city life at the end of the day and enjoy the open green spaces not so readily available in London, all the while still being able to commute to work in less than an hour.
Widen your search
Parts of London, which were once classed as deprived areas with low cost housing have now become very sought after and prices are gradually on the increase. This is one of the many reasons that people with enough capital to use as a deposit are moving to areas such as Brentwood, Walthamstow, Leyton or Chingford. The transport links including the underground, buses and cycle lanes are ideal for people working in the centre of the city and also for travel to any part of the country via the large stations such as Kings Cross.
Living in the city has its bonuses when it comes to deciding what to do. London has an abundance of restaurants and eateries available, ensuring that you and your family will never be stuck for somewhere to go and eat.
Salaries are also higher in the capital. The main benefit of moving to London is the city’s range of choice; London has everything for everyone, whether you are selecting a school for the kids or just an evening out at the theatre. If you buy a house in London, this will be the best decision you make.
