Let to Hertsmere Council – Area Guide
Recently named one of the happiest commuter towns in the UK by The Telegraph, Hertsmere is a pleasant and popular London suburb.
According to the local council, 80 per cent of Hertsmere is made up of Green Belt land, with agriculture being a key employment driver in the area. Hertsmere is also a haven for city commuters, with London being accessible in just 38 minutes. With fantastic road links via the M1, M25, A1 along with excellent local rail links, it is perhaps no surprise that over 60 per cent of residents commute to work outside Hertsmere. For investors looking to rent property to this demographic and enjoy high rates of return, this Hertfordshire district is sure to please.
Why invest in Hertsmere?
Hertsmere enjoys a fantastic location just 12 miles north of London, but for commuters who don’t want to travel for work, there’s plenty in the way of local employment in the film and television industry.
Hertsmere is home to Elstree Studios, located in the town of Borehamwood. These prolific studios create hundreds of jobs, and there are other major employers locally as well. The local council’s outlined growth initiative has plans in place to help the area continue to enjoy strong economic performance and aims to create 8,000 new local jobs between now and 2026. The average salary here is £45,913, but given the overall average house price is £480,335, (Rightmove), many would-be buyers are priced out of the market, which contributes to a strong rental market. The average rent in Borehamwood, for example, is £1,427 pcm, meaning investors can receive an average of £17,124 in annual rental income. The strong housing market here has seen prices rise by 11.4 per cent over the last year and by as much as 26.5 per cent over the past five years.
As of April 2015, Hertsmere Council has placed 100 households in temporary accommodation, and of these 100, 59 were accepted with a full housing duty.
