Where's best to buy in south london between battersea, clapham, tooting and colliers wood

I am undecided as to whether i should buy something in clapham junction / clapham south, or move further out and get more for my money. Areas I'm considering: Tooting Broadway Tooting Bec Colliers Wood - are these areas safe, including walking back from stations late at night for girls alone - is property is likely to sell on well if I moved in around 5 years Thanks :)

  • I have lived in Bec, Broadway and Colliers Wood. As a general rule of thumb, Bec probably has the better housing stock but I have a real soft spot for Colliers Wood. You get a lot more for your money, a seat on the tube in the morning and you are walking distance from Wimbledon.

  • Hi It depends on what you are looking for. I live in Clapham and absolutley love it. The commons are close by for sports, family times etc. Just down the road there are loads of bars/shops etc. I am closer to CJ (Northcote Rd) than Clapham High street - but loads of regeneration happening on /nr the high street - so it really does depend. CJ to Waterloo 10mins on trains that run regular. Also clapham is managed by two councils Lambeth & Wandsworth - Wandsworth has the cheapest Council tax in the country - so it does depend what you looking for. I hope that gives you some idea.

  • I lived in Clapham Junction and liked it, particularly with Battersea Park, Wandsworth Common, and Clapham Common all within easy walk/jog. Plus like the other post, Northcote road is great, although you don't get a lot for your money there. In terms of safety, there is definitely a "wrong side of the tracks" feel to the less busy side of clapham junction (the Grant Road/Winstanley Estate side). I was mugged for my mobile there 2 years ago and avoided that area after dark from then on.
