London is home to some of the most expensive retail in the whole of the world and house prices have been increasing for years across the boroughs.

Twenty years ago the price that you could buy a house at would seem like peanuts in todayís market but for some areas the cost hasnít risen as fast as their neighbours in other boroughs.

Now, new data has been revealed by Household Quotes so you have the opportunity to check how much it would cost to buy a house in London, in each area, from the year 2001.

Although some have not risen that fast, the top 9 of the biggest percentage increases all had a price increase, on average, of over 200%.

This means if a house was worth £150,000 back in 2001, it would be worth £400,000 in todayís market.

The top three biggest percentage increases were Waltham Forest, Hackney and The City of London.

Tower Hamlets, Hounslow and Kingston were the unlucky three who saw their house prices increase the least in the last 20 years.

Despite this, their house price did still increase and it was 148, 160 and 164 per cent that they increased in descending order.

London has seen property increase in every borough but those who own a property in the lowest risers might rightly feel hard done.

The data was released by Household Quotes and they announced that London was the best place to buy in the UK in terms of investment and that during the last 20 years housing has continuously been built in the capital.
