Let to Barnet Council – Area Guide
Barnet is situated in north London and is the second largest borough with 331,500 inhabitants calling it home.
A family-friendly area, the borough is home to nature reserves, parks and schools, and while this makes it a popular destination for families, the high price tags put property ownership out of reach for many of them. This means landlords are well positioned to rent out a larger property and enjoy a high rental yield in this popular part of North London.
Why invest in Barnet?
The average property price in Barnet is £486,004, having risen an impressive 8.3 per cent year-upon-year.
Projections for price growth going forward are positive, with some reports stating that prices will increase by as much as 20.7 per cent over the coming five years. While prices may be higher than nearby boroughs, they are still less than the overall London average. A three-bedroom property here can fetch around £1,500pcm in rent, and properties around schools are particularly popular (there are 86 primary schools and 22 secondary schools within its catchment).
From Barnet, there are excellent transport links into the city, making it a popular commuter town for those who want more living space without compromising fast access into London for work. In addition into the already-impressive facilities and infrastructure, there are plans in place to improve the area over the next 10-15 years which will no doubt have a positive impact on both the number of residents and local property prices. Cricklewood, Brent Cross, Colindale, Mill Hill East and West Hendon are all set to see substantial regeneration, and there are proposed plans for Barnet to receive a £100 million waste recycling plant that aims to recycle 70 per cent of household and commercial waste by 2020. This will potentially create several jobs, along with improving CO2 emissions. There are several plans to build thousands of new homes throughout the borough too, with the Dollis Valley in Chipping Barnet and Grahame Park among a number of areas set to benefit from new housing developments.
