More London Advice

Recommended Posts

Ok all, some advice needed about areas.

I have read elsewhere on here that when London does drop, it will drop hard so I guess it makes sense if we are to buy (against popular belief) our first place we should aim to get the area right to protect ourselves. Does this make sense?

We have looked at several areas we have enjoyed living in in the past: originally mainly Chalk Farm / Belsize Park / Swiss Cottage (we also looked SW at Clapham Junction, but I think this is too expensive for what you get cost of buying to rental potential ratio).

Then we expanded our search to Kentish Town / Tufnell Park, then further to Highgate and East Finchley.

Which do people feel are the more established/ less risky areas and why?

I have a feeling the likes of Clapham/Kentish Town are the areas more likely to drop when the proverbial hits the fan.

Does buying in the best possible area make sense as a strategy?
