Living in London
The capital of the UK and one of the largest metropolitan areas in Europe, London is a sprawling world city teeming with opportunities for work, recreation and living. In one city alone, there are 32 boroughs and a plethora of districts, so there really is something for everyone. Take Soho for example: this swanky neighbourhood is right in the very heart of London and has a reputation for being both sophisticated and fun, attracting many notable people with its historic and cultural landmarks while simultaneously being a hotspot for entertainment and dining out. Meanwhile, areas like Wimbledon and Ealing offer a slice of suburban living and are more family-friendly or suited to young buyers who want a short commute into their city workspaces.
An investment in London property
Why invest in London property? With its many districts and opportunities, London is a fantastic place to start if you are hoping to get on the property ladder or build your investment portfolio.
Acting as the UK’s nerve centre of tech, finance, and transport, London is a thriving city and its potential as an investment location just keeps on growing. From new build apartments in central London to classic period homes and restored townhouses, there are many types of accommodation on offer in the capital.
Characteristics of a typical one bed flat in London
A one bed flat in London is an attractive property for many reasons. Firstly, if you’re planning on living alone, a 1 bedroom flat would be easy to maintain, yet still provide ample living space. For students, elderly buyers, young professionals, or anyone generally wanting a simple, hassle-free lifestyle, a one bedroom apartment is ideal — especially if it comes fully furnished free of charge. One bedroom properties also act as a fantastic pied-à-terre for those who travel a lot. For seasoned landlords looking for an investment property for sale in London, a one bedroom apartment housing a single tenant or a couple is easier to manage than a larger property with more residents.

What is the difference between a one bedroom flat and a studio apartment?
The difference between a one bedroom flat and a studio apartment has nothing to do with size, although studio apartments are generally smaller and more compact. Typically, a 1 bedroom flat is a property with a bedroom that is separated by a wall and a door. On the other hand, a standard studio apartment is a self-contained space with an open-plan design and will usually have a designated area for sleeping as opposed to an actual bed ‘room’, as well as a separate bathroom or shower room.

Is buying cheaper than renting?
Whether you should rent or buy depends on your circumstances and what you are looking for, however in many cases, it can be much more cost-effective to own your own place as opposed to renting somewhere. For example, if you buy a brand new, fully-furnished one bedroom flat at Papermill House in Romford, your mortgage repayments could be as low as £417.42 per month.* In comparison, the average monthly cost for a one bedroom rental flat on average is around £800.
