Highest potential rental yield in Southwark using the Portico Rental Yield Map*: 3.6%

Killer reason to invest here:

“Southwark has become an extremely attractive place to settle thanks to vast regeneration and development in the area. It has always been a hub for art and culture, offering the Tate Modern and Borough Market, but there has been a surge in new restaurants, nightlife and amenities as of late, which has only added to the area’s appeal.

“A huge number of businesses are now moving into this new extension of the City, where the rent is slightly lower than it is in prime central London. In addition to this, SE1 is easily accessible with Thameslink and central London is on the doorstep, so commuters can walk to work in the City.” Vatche Cherchian, Regional Director, Portico.
