Greenwich – one of London’s most affordable top five boroughs


New research conducted by estate agent Strutt & Parker, indicates that Greenwich is one of the most affordable boroughs for those seeking their second home.

From young professionals, to couples and growing families, the Royal Borough of Greenwich continues to be one of the best value inner London boroughs for those looking for a two or three-bedroom home, making Barratt London’s riverfront development, Enderby Wharf, the perfect location to upsize your property.

A quarter of first time buyers are finding it harder to trade up, than they did to get on the property ladder.

“Most first time buyers in London breathe a huge sigh of relief at being able to afford to get on to the housing ladder, but the big price jump to the next step up unfortunately illustrates that many will remain in their first home for longer than they anticipate," says Rightmove director and housing market analyst, Miles Shipside.

Greenwich is London’s largest inner borough, so it naturally depends on which part of the diverse borough you’re buying in - three-bedroom apartments near Greenwich’s bustling town centre are almost £900,000, nearly double the price of similar properties in the up and coming areas of Plumstead and Woolwich. Enderby Wharf is the ideal middle ground, situated just a 12-minute* walk from Greenwich and offering great value for money. Two-bedroom apartments start from £600,000, with the option of using London’s Help to Buy scheme requiring only a 5% deposit – a scheme suitable for existing homeowners as well as first time buyers.
