Research by Zoopla discovered 1.52% of Redbridge homes for sale on its website were in need of some renovation.
Newham was second on the list of London boroughs at 1.25%, while Waltham Forest was the place with the fewest properties needing work done on 0.48% – less than one in 200.
Meanwhile, the IG postcode area, which includes Barking, Ilford and Chigwell, was ranked as the eighth-best place in the country to buy propeties in need of an update – with 1.71% needing improvements.
Slough in Berkshire is Britain’s top hotspot for renovations, with 3.32% of properties there requiring work.
Lawrence Hall, from Zoopla, said: “It’s worth bearing these locations in mind if you’re considering moving to a new area and don’t mind putting some work into a property to turn it into your dream home.”
The results come after analysing properties advertised on Zoopla’s website which included terms such as “requires”, “refurbishment”, “planning” and overhaul”.Tags: Redbridge, Ilford
