Evolving York combines best of both worlds

[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 25, 2016 6:15:57 PM / by Brett Alegre-Wood

York is a historic English city with history stemming back to Roman times. The city has long been a trade hub, conveniently located in the heart of Yorkshire. York's local economy is thriving thanks to strong employment growth (set to grow at 4% more than the UK average by 2030) and tourism. 

An urban setting, York benefits from the close proximity to both of Yorkshire's national parks, truly providing the best of two worlds – city living a stone's throw from the glorious rolling greens of the Yorkshire landscape.

The art of investing in Deptford regeneration

In the Borough of Lewisham, Deptford is returning to its once busy and bustling glory days – though in a new guise. Once the site of the royal dockyard, its maritime past has been replaced by an altogether more cultural core. More than a year ago, this sea change in demography prompted Martyn Evans of Cathedral Group to say the arrival of “artists and creatives has put Deptford at the apex of fashionability.”

Elephant & Castle property no longer a white elephant for buy-to-let investors

When hearing the words “Elephant & Castle”, most Londoners immediately think of a run-down and ramshackle area dominated by a double roundabout of traffic turmoil and two large and loathsome estates – the Heygate and Aylesbury, both of which look, feel, and smell of decades of decay and neglect.

As London prices ripple out, Stanmore property catches a wave

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 14, 2016 11:43:00 AM / by Brett Alegre-Wood

Attractive and affluent with strong investment potential

Stanmore, in the London Borough of Harrow, is one of those locations that beg you to live there: affluent, leafy, suburban. Surrounded by green spaces and conservation areas, and with an understated high street that is home to an eclectic choice of boutique-style shops, restaurants and cafés, Stanmore property is attractive for all the right reasons. And though in Zone 5, commuters are only 48 minutes to Canary Wharf and 37 minutes to Waterloo. But this is only part of what makes it so exciting for property investors.

Orpington property: a home run for investors, buyers, and renters

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 10, 2016 8:00:00 AM / by Brett Alegre-Wood

Rent, rent-to-let, buy, or buy-to-rent: all options are open in Orpington

With property prices in London seemingly at a plateau, house buyers and property investors are looking elsewhere for opportunity. We think that opportunity is Orpington property.

It’s a place that is within easy reach of work and play, and saves homeowners (and renters) a small fortune in housing costs. That fortune translates into big savings even when travel costs are included. Even better, Orpington is benefitting from an unprecedented level of regeneration.
