  1. Bermondsey started from a very low base but has always had the advantage of being very centrally located. On the positive side, It got the tube station approx 10 years ago, Shad thames & Pool of London are excellent and within walking distance, Bermondsey spa is a regeneration project (http://www.bermondseyspa.org.uk/) aiming to improve the area and the Chambers Wharf development (http://www.chambers-wharf.co.uk/) should improve its riverside even more. On the negative side, the immediate area around Bermondsey Tube station is littered with council estates and this is unlikely to change
  2. My first property was a flat and I did not realise any of the above. After a couple of years I swear I would never buy another flat hence my username!
  3. If you want to live within 20mins walking distance of London Bridge for £200k, Bermondsey is probably your only realistic choice. The area is not great but fortunately it's on the up. Shad thames and the river is also close by.
  4. I lived there for a couple of years approx 10 years ago. It's a very middle class area with good facilities. Victoria Station and London Bridge is approx 25mins away on the Train. I was interested in the following property until the estate agent told me that it's for cash buyers only. http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.a...amp;pid=4088786 I would recommend Beckenham to anyone, especially if they have/are thinking of starting a family.
  5. Is early 2007 prices good? I thought the peak was reached at the end of 2007 and prices should be down to 2006 level (if not lower) by now?
  6. There is a huge development planned for the eastern section of Canary Wharf over the next 10 years. http://www.woodwharf.com/vision.php This should make the area even more desirable. Anyone buying around here?
  7. What about Wapping/St Katherine Dock? Close to Central London and is probably the nicest area in East London (although that's not saying much!).
  8. Even at the discounted prices, you are still looking at £365+ psf (presumably for the flat with the worse view and noise pollution). No bargain here...
  9. I am not sure if this is correct as there's the Thames clipper service at both Greenland and Greenwich pier. http://www.thamesclippers.com/routes-times...es-booking.html OP, have you thought about looking at Greenwich/Cutty Sark? Lots of restaurant/cafe e.t.c locally as well the river and DLR.
  10. I like Bermondsey and have lived there but it is far from "awesome"! Council housing is still a very predominant feature of the area and Jamaica road is still very rough. Now doubt Bermondsey is up and coming but it still has a bit to go yet.
  11. Try the walk from Shad Thames/Tower Bridge (10mins walk from North Bermondsey) to Waterloo - not too shabby! Got to agree with you there. Rent now, see if you like the area whilst waiting for house price to fall further over the next 6-12months. To see if a place is overprice, compare it with what similar properties sold for (http://www.houseprices.co.uk/) in 2007 (peak) and if the place you're looking at is not at least 20% cheaper than it is expensive! With your budget, why not try Wapping? Much more polished and same distance to the thames path.
  12. Below are some examples I've found of reducing asking price in E14. Vendors are waking up and smelling the coffe. It might be worth waiting until the S**T hits the fan before buying though 1. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...es%26index%3D10 Property for sale Westferry Road, London, £650,000 Freehold vacent public house, offers in excess of £1,000,000.00... History date event 04 March 2009 * Price changed: from '£1,000,000' to '£650,000' [Found by Adam_Kennedy] 06 January 2008 * Initial entry found. [Found by beerhunter] 2. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/prope
  13. Lots of properties in E14 were asking way over peak prices over the last 6 months. Now asking prices are coming down to the 2007 peak. I will offer 20-30% off peak if I see something that I like. If the vendor decline my offer then I have no doubt something similar or better will come along in the next year or so.
  14. Try http://www.nestoria.co.uk/north-london/property/buy which I found via this link http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/ind...howtopic=106729 Unfortunately, it doesn't look v.accurate
  15. Where did you get your data from? Thanks
