Why Invest the London Commuter-belt?
Rise and Rise of the London Commuter–Belt
As of 2018, nearly 6.2% of 2,000 surveyed Londoners said they were looking to move away. Applying this average to the whole population, that’s over 520,000 or 1 in every 16 that are looking for an alternative. This isn’t just older demographics either. A second survey focused on teenagers and students found that out of 1,300, a narrow majority would not want to live or work in London. As the growth in the capital continues to accelerate the surrounding locations with easy transportation links are reaping the benefits with projected price growth of 35%.
Firstly, and probably most importantly, it’s affordable. With much cheaper property prices, lower cost of living and excellent accessibility, the Commuter Belt is a great fit for those who want a less expensive lifestyle but still want to work or play in London.
So why are people heading to the Commuter Belt?
Firstly, and probably most importantly, it’s affordable. With much cheaper property prices, lower cost of living and excellent accessibility, the Commuter Belt is a great fit for those who want a less expensive lifestyle but don’t want to give up London completely.
It’s also experiencing something of a renaissance. From Slough to Reading, Basingstoke to Woolwich and Bracknell to Wokingham commuter towns are taking advantage of inwards investment to create a enjoyable lifestyle, one which people would be happy to live and invest in. While London continues to see declining property prices, certain Commuter Belt locations are expecting growth of nearly 35% thanks to commercial, retail and lifestyle-focused redevelopments.
Many commuter belt locations are ranking well in terms of potential, setting themselves up as great investment opportunities thanks to good schools, low unemployment and impressive amenities. These factors are driving tenant demand, providing for the young professionals and families that are leaving the capital.
