Streatham, a local market review

Streatham is well served by public transport with trains, tubes and buses going almost anywhere in London. Currently more affordable than nearby areas of Clapham and Balham, it is definitely up and coming with new eateries and retail provision springing up on the high street.

Streatham Hill lies in the south of the borough and accommodates approximately 5% of its population. In 2011 this stood at 14,260 having increased by 4% since 2001. Homes in Streatham are now in high demand and the area is experiencing a wave of gentrification and it has a much higher proportion of privately owned and rented homes compared with the rest of the borough. Across Lambeth 64% of units currently being built have been sold off plan and only 1% of those completed in the last year remain on the market.
