Summary:Expensive but worth it.  Long term tenant potential.
Sought After Streets:Swain’s Lane, West Hill Park and Cromwell Avenue.


You have to look hard here to find something.  Highgate is expensive but its now the alternative to Hampstead and represents good value relative to Hampstead’s prices.  The area attracts high earners (mandatory to afford these prices!) and they are willing to pay a good rental price for the right property.  The yields can be better at the top end of the market as the type of tenants in this area have the money to pay for a property with the perfect view, plush décor, proximity to station, location to amenities etc.

I like this area’s location considering its neighbour’s – Hampstead (mentioned above), Muswell Hill, Crouch End, Islington and Camden.  All great areas from a living point of view.  If Highgate hasn’t got what you want you’ll be guaranteed that one of your neighbours has got it.  Highgate prides itself for such low migration rates.  People moving in Highgate are moving to another place in Highgate.
