Why invest in Basingstoke?

Discover Basingstoke’s potential

This growing economy has been recognised as one of the best digital economies in the UK outside of London, showcasing what makes it such an attractive proposition in terms of tenant demand. As a major part of the ‘tech corridor’, Basingstoke is recognised as one of the top three local authority areas for productivity, business survival rates and knowledge-driven businesses.

As London property continues to price people out of the market, Basingstoke also represents the rise of a second Commuter Belt. Generally attributed to a ‘generational shift’, the outer Commuter Belt shows that workers are willing to travel further when faced with economic challenges.

So what makes Basingstoke such a draw for investors?

With a thriving employment sector and a huge number of regeneration projects in the pipeline, Basingstoke is reaping the benefits being felt across the Commuter Belt.

Home to a number of top brand headquarters, Basingstoke has managed to attract companies such as Lenovo, Tech Data and Motorola, with 66% of its total population working in the city as of last year. As the third fastest growing town in the UK with a population of 175,000, Basingstoke is also one of the UK’s top cities for low unemployment (2.40%) and employs a workforce of 41,000.

With Basingstoke on the rise and offering an easy commute to the capital, it lends itself perfectly to the Buy-to-Let market for investors. The inclusion of excellent schools, economic growth and employment opportunities only serves to strengthen the town.

Between 2005 and 2015, Basingstoke saw a 31% rise in house prices and this increase has only continued, showing evidence of incredible value in a market that is already much more affordable than the capital. As we head into 2020, experts are predicting that Basingstoke will only benefit from the inwards investment and infrastructure improvements that are occurring.

Start quoteI took delivery of my first off-the-plan purchase in November and was astounded that it rented on the same day! SevenCapital gave great customer service, helping me navigate a last-minute lender change, and provided an excellent furniture package. The apartment delivered was high quality, hassle-free and ready to rent! End quote
