Summary:Offering both strong yields and potential growth which is unique.  One of the few areas that has the ability to deliver big returns from both angles.
Sought After Streets:Mill Street, Jamaica Road and Bermondsey Wall East.


This used to be a horrible place.  About 10 years ago the area looked like a scene out of a gangster movie.  There are still places like that but the area has cleaned up a lot.  The area serves Canary Wharf and the city and is linked by the relatively new tube station.

There are plenty of developments occurring in this area and there is a respectable cluster of shops and restaurants at nearby Shad Thames.  These areas are highly sought after by the young professionals who work in the city.  This has led to both property and rental prices rising in proportion with each other hence the decent yields of nearly 10% in some areas.  I think these young professionals do not mind taking the risk in living in these ex-gangster type of areas as they get a lot more for their money.

Tenant demand will be strong if our financial economy is strong as this area relies on jobs being provided by Canary Wharf and the city.  Currently the state of the financial economy seems good for at least the next 12 months but be aware this can change quite rapidly.  In the last 6 years the number of jobs in London have grown by 17% but we are heavily linked to the US economy so it pays to keep abreast of what’s going on across the Atlantic.
