Islington has become a residential area that is greatly sought after due to it being the perfect place to move to for anybody seeking leisure and entertainment.
Moving to Islington
Like most of London, Islington house prices are significantly higher than the majority of other areas within the United Kingdom.
In 2017 the average property sold for £591,041. This figure is probably lowered due to the fact that flats made up most of the real estate sales in the area.
The average sale price for a terraced property was £1,415,315 and the average sale price for a semi-detached house was £2,278,114.
