Latest London Borough Analysis...

The average house price in Greater London for December 2014 was £464,936, however, although this sounds like a lot of money it's a statistic that you shouldn't attach too much importance to when carrying out propertty projects as some areas average well over £1,000,000 which skews the numbers a bit.

Which boroughs have the lowest average prices?

  • Bexley - £279,061

  • Newham - £291,856

We all here about the enormous prices of some poperties in London but there are still some relatively affordable areas left with Newham and Bexley prices averaging well under £300,000. Obviously this is still a lot of money but not as extremely expenisve as London prices are often made out to be.
