Where to buy a bargain on a budget in London

Posted 7 October 2016 by Ben Salisbury

House prices in London are very high but if you can find an up and coming area with potential to grow, bargains are still able to be found...

One of the great things about London is that it's always evolving. As a result you can find an area going from being undesirable one day to the place to be the next.

Likewise, one way to buying an apartment in a 'cool' part of town is to buy into an area which has not yet reached its full potential. Shared Ownership can help you do that. Here's some examples of properties in Newham, Lambeth and New Southgate, all available through Notting Hill Housing, that are incredible value made even more affordable through Shared Ownership. 

Newham - Royal Albert Wharf, Beckton

Royal Albert Wharf (Notting Hill Sales)Great transport links, a beautiful setting and an amazing price. Royal Albert Wharf gives you all that plus the opportunity to part-buy, part-rent your property through Shared Ownership. Only 20 minutes from Canary Wharf, these apartments are located where the River Thames meets the Royal Docks.

For transport, the new homes are close to Gallions Reach Docklands Light Railway station. Cafés, bars and work spaces will be included in this development and it is home to an impressive Edwardian Pump House.
