Moving to Camden
Gentrification from neighbouring Primrose Hill over the past decade has pushed property prices up in Camden. The popular white Georgian terraces which are synonymous with residential London are changing hands for well over £1 million.
The London town has a mix of every kind of property, from low-rise blocks of flats and small Victorian terraces, to the palatial Victorian and Georgian terraces off the Camden Road and along Gloucester Crescent.
First time buyers looking to secure a Camden property will be hard pushed to find a one bedroom flat for less than £350,000. Take this up to £480,000 for two bedrooms. Family-sized terraced homes can be found for just over £900,000. However, once you hit four bedrooms, you will need to have a minimum budget of £1 million.
Those looking to rent a three-bedroom property should have a monthly minimum budget of £2800 or £3500 for four bedrooms. Smaller townhouses or end of terrace homes with two bedrooms fall between £1700 and £2500 pcm. Flats start at £1,100 but easily escalate over £3500 pcm.
