Which areas are high in demand in 2013?

Hello, I am a new investor who is searching for property to buy. However, I seem to be having a tricky time finding areas which are high in demand, for example, this means I'm searching for areas that are high in employment, well known in location, as well as places which have new faculties opening (Universities, Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, etc.). Is there any way I can find out which areas are high in demand in 2013, or maybe is there a website that shows this type of information? Please reply as quick as you can, Thank you.

  • SE14 5R, Myers Lane, Samuel Close, Bridge Meadows. Still cheap, always easy to find tenants and the new £850m sporting village around Millwall, the developers, Renewal have promised to pay for the completion of Surrey Canal Road Station, on the Overground, station box already built by TfL, due to be completed 2015.

  • Forest Gate E7, East Ham E6, Plaistow E13, Canning Town E16, Straford 15. These areas above are booming, when we put a house up marketed correctly it sells very fast. Mostly to families and investors.

  • Hello Distiny, I would stronlgy recommend West London areas such as High Street Kensington and West Fulham but with reference to North London - Harringay, Tottenham Hale and Seven Sisters are well sought suburbs.

  • Improved transport links and luxury accomodation are attracting City workers Croydon is currently entering a new era. After years of being known for its dreary concrete high-rise buildings and congested roads, the once rejected south London area is now turning into one of the most sought after locations for homebuyers. Local planners have learnt from their mistakes in the eighties and now, the area is the subject of a major regeneration plan set to improve public spaces, revamp its town centre and introduce plush modern pads to rival the ones lining the skyline in the City. As far as house prices are concerned, Croydon is already showing a lot of potential. According to the February edition of the Rightmove House Price Index, it is the fifth best performing borough in London, with house prices increasing by 7.5 per cent in February this year compared to the same time last year.

  • Look for towns with good schools, good transport infrastructure, a thriving town centre and access to London. Look for high levels of local employment and low crime statistics. All the above are factors which are likely to attract high quality local tenants and generate reasonable returns and constant occupation. If you are still looking, I would suggest Kingston upon Thames. All of the above plus a superb hospital, and a world class university. Best agent in the area - Lords of course! :) 0845 606 7760
