What does £250,000 buy in London?

If you are looking for a home in the capital priced at or below £250,000, it’s a tough call, but not impossible to find. 

The average price of a property in London is £506,724 (according to the Land Registry House Price Index), so less than half of that amount is unlikely to get you into a prime central London location, but you can still find a studio flat, or even a bigger property, in the capital. 

If you are prepared to compromise on the postcode and move a bit further away from the centre, the London market will offer you an attractive 1 bedroom apartment less than 20 minutes away from the City, or even a nice two bedroom flat in Zones 3 or 4.  

Prices in the capital are unlikely to go down, so a £250,000 purchase price can be a great start in owning a property in London with potential to upgrade further in the future, or, if chosen correctly, a safe investment for those who want to make their spare cash work for them.

Here are some examples of what £250,000 can give you in London.
