South east London property in the running

Many of the runners in the 2015 Virgin London Marathon will have been looking out for something. The next mile marker, a friendly face in the crowd or a water station, for instance. A few, however, might have been keeping their eyes peeled for 'for sale' boards', as they might just have read an article in CityAM on house prices along the famous 26.2 mile course. South east London estate agents love the annual road race is it shows off the area's best facets, from the beautiful starting point on the Blackheath Common/Greenwich Park border to the instantly-recognisable Cutty Sark tea clipper. Much has changed along the route over the last decade, comment Winkworth, and the value of properties for sale in south east London reflect the area's up-and-coming status - and the uplift isn't confined to established favourites. In fact, Charlton in SE7 registered the biggest annual house price growth of any of the major neighbourhoods along the marathon route, beating Canary Wharf, Whitechapel and illustrious St James's - home to the finishing line and Buckingham Palace. Charlton's house price rise of 7.4% was also more than triple that of Blackfriars and Monument. Other south east London areas fared just as well, with houses for sale in Blackheath now 4.5% more expensive this year, Deptford showing growth of 6.7% and Greenwich posting a rise of 3.2%. This is great news for those thinking of selling their home, comment Winkworth, as the south east London property market finally gets the attention it deserves, and values pull in line with east and south west London. The Borough of Greenwich - or to give it its proper title - the Royal Borough of Greenwich is undergoing a renaissance of epic proportions. Transport connections have improved immeasurably, with Lewisham and Woolwich now on the DLR route (the latter of which will also enjoy a Crossrail station in 2018). Blackheath is cementing itself as a major leisure destination, with OnBlackheath a new and successful entrant into the capital's festival scene, and Greenwich revelling in its World Heritage Site status, with its impressive maritime history, observatory and sprawling Royal Park. Lewisham Borough is also experiencing a renaissance, with the attractive Victorian housing stock and quick commute into Central London attracting buyers looking beyond Dulwich, Brixton and Balham. The area is alight with news that Transport for London has set out plans to extend the Bakerloo line to the area, continuing from Elephant & Castle and potentially stopping at Catford, Lewisham and Sydenham. If you are excited by the prospect of property for sale in south east London and would like more details about the local home moving market, contact Winkworth today.
