Hackney is a borough that has grown phenomenally over the last twenty or so years. Our team of estate agents in E3 want to talk you through its popularity and why Hackney and neighbouring Islington are good options for selling or investing in London property the year ahead.

A growing demand for property in Hackney

Together with flats, there are terraces and semi-detached properties scattered all throughout the borough. Hackney holds great appeal for buyers whether they are single, a couple or a young family.  The average price of a home in Hackney is currently just over £626,000.

Hackney has been revealed as London’s most in-demand borough for buyers.

Buying property in Hackney

This area is deemed a great alternative if you are priced out of other markets and gives great returns for your money. Rental yields in the area are good, making it a good location for investment.

Everything on your doorstep in Hackney

Over the last decade the area has grown. Traditionally it was full of industry and afterwards affordable studio spaces for artists alongside the odd corner shop. Where there were once no facilities for people to enjoy, nowadays everything you need is on your doorstep here.
The arrival of new cafes, bars, restaurants and other amenities has given Hackney a new lease of life. Hackney is now said to be one of the trendiest parts of the city to live, deemed somewhat of a Hipster Paradise. The transport links are fantastic with quick commutes into central London and beyond too.

Ever popular Islington

Another favourite for the year ahead is deemed to be Islington. This location has always been a strong performer. It is in a lovely setting with its tree lined streets and its Victorian and Georgian homes alongside some newer properties.

This setting gives it a higher price tag. It entices the growing family and people who want to stay for the long haul into the area. Buying a property in Islington will set you back an average price of just over £770,000 but you will not be disappointed with this beautiful area. Only four miles from Central London and with many of the amenities of a city centre itself, investing in Islington is a fantastic option.
