Wimbledon can be synonymous with sports. Tennis is, of course, the obvious one, but it also has links to football and often sees athletes descend on Wimbledon Common to make use of its open spaces. Wimbledon town and village are an attractive prospect to people looking to move into an affluent area of the capital.
As a mortgage advisor with experience in Wimbledon, we see that applicants are often drawn to the area’s fantastic transport links, its wonderful large Victorian architecture and, again, the local greenery. James Morrison, a member of the local Savills branch, told the Evening Standard in June 2017 that it’s a village with staying power.
Those that move to Wimbledon, he says, are in it for the long haul with houses often only going up for sale ‘once in a generation’.

Oportfolio’s Fulham-based team of mortgage advisors know the Wimbledon area well; contact us today if you’re thinking of moving into the Wimbledon area and are seeking professional mortgage advice.
According to James Morrison, director of the local branch of Savills, Wimbledon is popular with families as the area is well-known for its excellent schools. While it isn’t the cheapest option for those needing to upsize, the area is popular with Chelsea families in search of larger homes, gardens and surrounding green space while staying within a half hour commute of the City.
“Prices per square foot are comparable to areas like Putney, Fulham or Clapham,” explains Morrison.
Morrison goes on to explain that families buying in Wimbledon tend to stay for the long haul, with houses often coming up for sale only once in a generation.
It’s common for families to approach a mortgage advisor such as Oportfolio with a view to settling down for the long term in their ideal area. A good working relationship with a professional mortgage advisor can take some of the weight from their shoulders, and help them to find the most suitable mortgage package for their needs.
There are other benefits to working with a mortgage advisor
Not only can an experienced, professional advisor guide you through the complex mortgage process, but they can also help property owners to explore and discover better terms whenever they’re looking to remortgage or find another lender.
A great advisor can also introduce applicants to other necessities that they may not have previously considered before, such as specific types of property insurance to complement the overall mortgage package to ensure that you and your possessions are protected should an accident ever occur.
Possibly the biggest single benefit of working with a professional advisor though when looking at properties in high-value areas is that they’ll be able to deal with lenders and insurers on your behalf to navigate what can be an incredibly complicated process, partnering with you to find the absolute best mortgage and insurance package for your needs for now and the future.
