Summary:A nice place to live – so should attract long term tenants.
Sought After Streets:Smugglers Way, Northfield Road and Osiers Way.


This place has really risen up.  It has an enviable position being next to the river and has seen loads of industrial buildings converted in to pretty riverside apartments.  This trend will continue.  The shopping centre has had a revamp and there are more plans to build another shopping/office/housing complex near the town centre.

There is no shortage of properties available to buy especially new builds as there a lot of developments going on at the moment.  You won’t have much competition from commuters as there is no tube.  The area is definitely up-market.  Not so up-market neighbouring areas  try to cash in on the Wandsworth name – this must tell you something about the area!

What is also great about this area is that you have a choice of Common – Wandsworth or Clapham.  Couples that live here grow in to families so the potential for a long term tenant is high.  The not so brilliant yields are compensated by the likelihood of capital growth.  I expect this area to well out perform the market in the long term.
