Kingston Upon Thames has proven to be a very safe bet if you are looking for investment properties. The area has a fantastic reputation, viewed in the same way that central London is but with more space. This view has been earned because the Borough is such a fantastic retail destination. In fact it is believed that more money is spent on shopping in the area than in any destination in the capital except the lucrative west end shops in Kensington.
The local housing market in Kingston Upon Thames is very interesting. Properties vary in value and size, with large parts of the area dominated by two and three bedroom homes.

Surprisingly a second, more lucrative area exists east of the shopping quarter. Here you can find gated communities and larger mansions with values exceeding £15 million at times. The area is very much like prime London. The KT2 district is very valuable and there are a number of noteworthy locations including Coombe and the streets that back on to Richmond Park.
