The research conducted by Lloyds Bank last month revealed that young professionals are prepared to pay a premium of £71,000 in order to secure a property in one of the most preferred places to live in the UK.
Love Wimbledon, the on-line guide to the area stated that two of the reasons why buyers were drawn to Wimbledon because of the terrific transport links and its strong vibrant nightlife.
Andrew Mason, Lloyds Mortgage Products Director stated: “Aspiring young professional area typically well qualified, in well paid jobs and tend to live in areas not far from the city centre where they work.
“These are also places where they can enjoy easy access to green space and a range of places to socialise.
“These buyers also don’t appear to be put off by the significant premium in price to live in areas popular with young professionals.”
