Location, Location Location! Does it really matter?
With the territory comes excellent house prices. If you have a property in a dream location by the sea or in a lovely suburb, your market value will rarely drop. It could look like a dungeon on the outside but if you place it in the centre of London, there will still be a high demand. The importance of a good location can not be overestimated. It can improve your chances of landing that ideal job, because it literally opens doors to greater opportunities
Cleanliness Chaos – How will the new ‘Clean & Tidy’ Clause affect you

What’s gentrification got to do with it?
Gentrification is not a new concept, but areas like Shoreditch and Hackney have seen a wave of popularity, often promoted by celebrities, as the cool new trend. Actor Idris Elba for example was born in Hackney and has pushed for the regeneration of a typically impoverished area where crime has been statistically high, with a whopping 568% increase in value over 20 years. Sadly, that has forced those who can not stump up that price away from the area they have called home for years, staying loyal to an area that needed help.
