Enfield house prices: What you can get for your money

Enfield house prices: What you can get for your money
Enfield in North London is hugely appealing to buyers thanks to its small town feel and open spaces.

Links back into town are also good, with Overground and Underground services into central London.

But given the London property market has experienced something of a slowdown since the EU referendum of 2016, how are things looking now and what could you get for your money in this area of North London?

House prices in Enfield

While some parts of London have experienced a drop in property prices over the past two-and-a-half years, Enfield's house prices have been underpinned by its popularity.

Property in the EN1, EN2 and EN3 core postcode areas have grown by 1.2% over the past 12 months, according to Dataloft Inform.

That's marginally higher than Greater London as a whole and even higher than the UK average of 1.1%.

Transactions across the UK have stalled, down by 5.6% in the past year, while Greater London has experienced a 9.2% drop in properties sold.

Enfield, though, has seen transactions fall by just 1.8% over the year, meaning people in the area are still buying and selling great properties despite any lingering economic and political uncertainty.
