Property for sale in South West London tops young professionals' popularity list

South West London estate agents already have something to cheer about ahead of Wimbledon's finals matches. Although the nation's focus will once again be trained on SW19 this June as tennis fever takes hold, new research released prior to the event shows properties for sale in South West London have just as many admirers as Murray, Nadal and company. Edward Foley, the Director at Winkworth Wimbledon estate agents, says South West London has gained a new fanbase outside of tennis lovers: "The Wimbledon championship is great for the whole of South West London as it gives us a spotlight in which to shine. What follows is normally a rash of publicity about how the event helps propel property prices in the area. This year, however, research by Lloyds has been made public ahead of the tournament showing that young professionals are consciously choosing houses and flats for sale in South West London." The findings by the bank showed that of the 20 most popular areas for young, professional home movers, half of those were in London's SW postal district. Topping the list were Wimbledon (SW19), followed by Fulham (SW6), Wandsworth (SW18) and Battersea (SW11). Also making the top 20 were Streatham (SW16), Tooting (SW17), Putney (SW15), Balham (SW12), Brixton (SW2) and Clapham (SW4) meaning that property for sale in South West London was favoured by half of the young home moving professionals surveyed. "We definitely concur with the research, which looked at the property buying habits of 'young urbanites' graduate professionals aged 25 to 44 in well paid jobs living in towns and cities. Many of our clients, both buyers of property for sale in South West London, and vendors looking to move within the area, fit in this category. They are drawn to the SW postcodes for the leafy streets, cultural diversity, excellent educational facilities, and easeofaccess into the West End and the City. Having a worldclass tennis tournament in the vicinity only adds to the appeal but it's no longer a deciding factor in home movers' decisions," adds Foley. As a leading South West London estate agent, Winkworth should be the first choice for anyone thinking of buying, selling, renting or investing in the area. We have 14 offices in South West London, giving blanket coverage of every SW London postcode.
