Properties for Sale and Rent in East London

Covering an enormous area, East London is a vibrant and culturally interesting district which is well on the way to being the fastest growing destination in the capital city. Home to many of the Olympic 2012 venues and events, the area is benefiting from redevelopment and renewed interest from buyers.

Property in East London is as diverse as the population - waterside apartments, studio flats, terraced houses and traditional semis are all plentiful. House prices in East London vary too, depending on exact location and size of the dwelling, but average prices for the seven London boroughs that make up East London tend to be at the cheaper end of the price spectrum across the capital.

You'll be spoilt for choice thanks to the number of unique restaurants, family attractions, bars and places of historical interest to visit. East London takes in a vast area, encompassing London's iconic landmarks such as Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, Canary Wharf, Maritime Greenwich... the list is endless. Go bargain hunting at Brick Lane or Spitalfields, or have a night out at the wonderful O2 Exhibition Centre - you'll never be stuck for something exciting to do. You might fancy a trip to the Geffrye Museum (specializing in English interiors) in Hackney or to Deptford, with its fine reputation for festivals and exciting resident artists.

Getting around East London is easy. Public transport is excellent at every level, whether it's the linked up rail system, the world-renowned London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, efficient bus routes, taxis, or, of course, the various London Airports which all lie within easy reach. East London is a city within a city - constantly growing and developing, it is an exciting and stimulating place to live. With a diverse range of properties on the market, there is something for everyone.

The population is booming in east London and, with more Londoners living east of Tower Bridge than west, a wave of regeneration is sweeping the area. It's no wonder developers are discovering the potential - and hipsters are moving in. Wealth and opportunity continue to spread across east London. The area has been experiencing a gold rush since 2005, when Stratford was selected to host the 2012 Olympics.

During the past decade, property prices have jumped by more than 300 per cent, and they are still rising up 22 per cent in Newham borough last year, more than in any other part  of the UK. The change is remarkable and ongoing. More Londoners now live east of Tower Bridge than to the west of the city, and east London’s population is projected to grow by a further 600,000 in the next 15 years.

Stretching from Hackney to Dagenham, to the green infrastructure of Stratford and the Olympic Park, to the open space of Walthamstow and beyond, East London has a multitude of faces. The London boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest all fall within the boundaries of East London.

Close to the city, moving from west to east, is Hoxton, Haggerston, Dalston, London Fields and Hackney Central, where you can find Banksy originals, the roadway Market and fixed-gear cyclists, all close to £400k loft apartments, gastro-bars and vintage shops, galleries and clubs. Bethnal Green has a relaxed vibe, good connections and a reasonable cost of living. Mile End and Bow have a similar feel, but are less expensive.

Further east, towards Stratford and Leyton, the 2012 Summer Olympics have led to huge amounts of development in the area, most of it very positive. The new infrastructure is really remarkable. House prices are rapidly rising but there are still bargains to be grabbed. If you're prepared to move even further out, Walthamstow is a friendly place with good transport links and good value housing stock.

East London is an area bursting with history, containing some of the best of London and with a narrative that stretches back centuries. Since London began to spread beyond its city walls in the medieval era, the East has continuously made itself known in England and throughout the World. From Jack the Ripper in Whitechapel, to Sylvia Pankhurst’s work with the suffragette movement, East London is a place brimming with history and some of the very best that London, and England, has to offer.

FindaFlat

The big property sites (you know the ones we're taking about) don't allow private landlords to advertise - they only accept listings from agents. This leaves private landlords with fewer options when it comes to advertising. Around a third of UK landlords don't use an agent to manage their properties or find tenants so there are a high number of great properties out there that are hard to find.
