Welcome to CBRE's annual Borough by Borough report, which is now in its eighth year. This extensive report combines rigorous data research with our unique local market insight to outline the ebbs and flows of real estate across London.

As always, our report focuses on those key pieces of information useful to existing and prospective property owners, or anyone who is looking to move in or to London. CBRE take into account public transport accessibility – based on TfL’s PTAL rating - and examines the quality of primary and secondary schools, as well as looking at the amount of open, green space in the area, and – of course – diving into key asking rent and yields, and average property prices over the last 5 years and predictions for the next 5.
