Perhaps the best place to look for the best London properties is online.
At Home.co.uk or findaproperty.com, a homebuyer can search by location, price range, number of bedrooms and number of bathrooms. Once a property is selected, the homebuyer can link with a live estate agent and begin to view properties.
Many of the properties are rather old so they need to be inspected by inspectors to make sure the plumbing, electrical works and foundation are sound.
Palace gate is another online searching utility that allows prospective homeowners to pick out a London home over the internet before actually talking to an estate agent.
