    I am looking to buy a first property. I started to look around North London but it seems all too pricey so I now started to look at the East end. I need good connections to the City and Central London. The area needs to be safe and it would be nice to have the local amenities around (a few decent pubs/restaurants, drycleaners, local stores, gym.. etc).

    I first started to look at Hackney but it seems a bit pricey around the interesting parts and have moved down to Mile End and Limehouse. I did see a few nice apartments around both Bow and Milestone. Specifically looked around the area where near Burdett Road and Limehouse cut.

    What other decent areas nearby would you recommend for a first time house buyer?

    Just quoting this for future reference.

    Not that I have my doubts or anything, but I reckon Canning Town will succumb to global sea level rises long before any signs of gentrification appear...:D

    When only people who can afford buildings on stilts live there, that would be gentrified:D

    We shall see brother... give it a cpl of years and it'll be lovely around here.

    We intend to move out before sea levels rise enough to engulf.

    Canning Town is only gentrified in the sense that there are some new build part-ownership places two seconds from the station :hmm: To quote a chum who just bought one such "We're hoping Canning Town gentrifies around us" :rolleyes:

    And, actually, fuck you, OP. You'll end up in Upton and like it :mad:

    why the rash of threads about 'where should I buy a property?' on urban :hmm:
    surely you go to a place and have a look and a feel of it?

    More than a couple about the east end too. Hah hah & death to people thinking "Oh, isn't Hackney/Whitechapel terrifying! Don't like the sound of it AT ALL! It must be sooo cheap! I'll be so clever to beat the rush into this area. I, personally, will kick start the gentrification" :facepalm:
