South Acton has a small property market with mainly flats, semi detached and terraced houses for sale and rent. Despite the small number of homes for sale, 3 and 4 bedroom houses can sell for between £600,000 - £1,000,000 and some of them are quite spectacular Victorian and Edwardian properties. These properties date back to the traditional Victorian street patterns that much of South Action was built to before the tower blocks of the 1960's. 1 bedroom homes in South Acton are priced at around £150,000 - £200,000 or more with 2 bedroom properties being sold for prices as high as £400,000. The rental market is very small in South Acton but unfortunately the rents are not, 4 and 5 bedroom houses can rent for well over £2000 a month in this smart residential area but there are also smaller terraced houses to rent at well under a £1000 at the budget end of the market.
South Acton does not have its own shopping centre, the main shopping centre is provided by Acton High Street which also serves East Acton, Acton Central and Southfield, in total the population of all these areas is approx 54,000. Other key developments in South Action include Acton High School which is now a school for media and the arts.
