Let to Waltham Forest Council – Area Guide
Situated in north east London, Waltham Forest is an ethnically diverse and exciting region of the capital.
There is a great deal of development here as the area is well furnished with local amenities and housing. However, there is no shortage of open green space; in fact, parks and playing fields cover more than a fifth of the borough, a rarity for an area so close to central London. Residents can enjoy a varied selection of food markets, restaurants, cafes and shops, while the city centre can be easily accessed via Walthamstow Station with both Central and Victoria lines running throughout. All of this has contributed to healthy property prices and a strong rental market, something property investors can take advantage of.
Why invest in Waltham Forest?
The tenant demographic here veers towards young professionals and families, with the average age of local residents listed as 34.4 years old.
Furthermore, seven out of ten working-age residents are employed, great news for landlords who are keen to let to professional tenants. In June 2014, the borough’s average house price was £333,300, up 28 per cent from the year prior. As of January 2015 however, the average house price in Waltham Forest has increased substantially to £415,211. This inflation reflects a robust housing market in which prices have continued on an upward trajectory over the past three years, which means buy-to-let investors can expect strong capital gains.
According to the local council, the demand for social housing in Waltham Forest is “very high”, and yet there is at the same time a “severe shortage” of accommodation. There is a Housing Register on which residents can apply for a home, and landlords can help alleviate this demand by investing in property and letting it direct to the council.
