A house in London could be the place for you to start your career as a software developer, but a more glamorous option may be to live in the capital.
There are more than a few factors that influence how many London houses a prospective buyer might look for.
“It could be a good place to start if you have a lot of money and you want to get in the business, if you’re a young engineer, if there’s a good university, if your parents are nice, if they’re rich, if it’s a big city,” says David Deutsch, founder of the website House Rentals UK.
House rentals in London can be expensive.
The average cost of a London home is about £300,000.
You’ll also want to take into account how much the area is valued, the price of land, the size of the house, the quality of the interior and how much time you want your house to last.
It’s important to note that a property doesn’t always have to be in a particular location.
If you’re looking to move to London, it might be a smart decision to rent an apartment in a town close to your job or to live closer to your employer.

In a number of London boroughs, the average rent for a flat is between £500,000 and £1 million, according to Land Registry data.
Another key factor is how much you can afford to live.
For example, in the South Bank, where rents are significantly higher than in the rest of the country, you could be better off paying a little more to live at a cheaper location.

A typical London house can last around 20 years.
To determine the right property, look at the size, type of floor plan, and amenities, among other factors.
If you’re living in the same area, it may be best to compare properties.
“You’ll find that many of the properties are similar in size, but there’s usually a lot more space for people to live,” says Deutsch.
