Hi This looks like the perfect place to ask for help. I am a first time buyer who works in the west end. I am looking to buy in SELondon because you get more for your money and I like green space. I'm not looking to make a fortune in property speculation, but I would like to buy in an area that is at least on the up in terms of its prospects for places to go, local schools and having nice neighbours. My partner and I have about Â£350,000 to spend - Â£400,000 at our absolute limit. I think that puts Greenwich, Blackheath and Dulwich out of our range but hopefully nowhere else. I'm looking for at least two beds and a little garden (flat or house, don't mind). We have no kids but maybe in future. The areas I'm looking at are: 1. hither green 2. brockley 3. east dulwich 4. forest hill 5. honor oak 6. lee So I have two questions. Firstly, which of these areas would people say is best and secondly, are there any areas I've missed that are really good and why? Thanks a lot for any advice. This is a big decision for us.
