We all know London’s got a reputation for having the most expensive houses, but how does it differ across neighbouring boroughs?

In the past 12 months, the average property price in south east London was £573,280.

We’ve had a look through Zoopla and found four houses for around this price in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham to see where you can get the best value for your money.


Coming in at the cheapest price is this £550,000 semi-detached house in Porthkerry Avenue, DA16.

News Shopper:

The house has three bedrooms and a modern bathroom.

It also has a spacious living room that leads into a kitchen-diner.

News Shopper:

The garden has a lean to covering the patio and a lawned area with an outbuilding and a detached garage.

Bexley is the second cheapest area to live in London, with average house prices of £390,100, so for half a million pounds you can get a pretty big house.


Bromley is known for being expensive, but it seems like you can get some steals if you have a search.

The next house has almost all the same features as the one before, but for a slightly higher price of £565,000.

The three-bed semi-detached home is in Windsor Drive, BR6.

News Shopper:

It has a large living room with a dining area.

This house also has a conservatory in the back to soak up the sun.

It comes as no surprise that this sought-after area is a little bit pricier and for a lot less space.

For £575,000 in Vanbrugh Fields, SE3, you can get a two-bedroom flat.

News Shopper:

The top floor apartment has a communal garden which is perfect to soak up the sun in.

It has two double bedrooms and one bathroom.

News Shopper:

There is also a large living area and lime green kitchen.

Lewisham is the most income-deprived area in south east London, but it does have some pricey properties.

For £575,000 you can also get a two-bedroom flat in Ashby Road, SE4.

News Shopper:

Whilst it isn’t the biggest apartment in the world, it is kitted out with a modern kitchen and bathroom.

News Shopper:

The flat also comes with a roof terrace to host parties and BBQs in the summertime, which is hard to come by in London.

News Shopper:

House prices are high across London and first-time buyers are struggling more than ever to get on the property ladder.
