Would you buy property in an area with a ‘chequered’ past?

9 days ago

I’m looking at areas to the East and South East of London.

Orientating really.

I know many of these areas have the perception of being slightly ‘rough’ but I don’t mind that so much.

We’ve lived in one of those areas for many a year now and even before its rather remarkable ’gentrification’ we’ve thankfully never experienced any serious incidents.

One of the areas I’m looking into (online, for now) is Eltham SE9.

It has some lovely (but nothing too fancy) houses with good sized gardens for relatively reasonable money.

Considering its obvious association, which I personally find hard to ignore, would you even consider it as an area to live?

TIA for your thoughts. 🙂
