Romford is a fantastic area for landlords to invest in. With the arrival of Crossrail’s The Elizabeth Line, rental income has increased substantially in the area as Londoners continue to move outside of central London to find more space. The rapid journey times promised by the new line ensure that commuters who work in the capital can enjoy the benefits of living in this vibrant suburb with the reassurance that they can be back at their desk in under an hour the following morning.
As the price of living in central London creeps up, this unaffordability helps to drive tenants out to seek rental accommodation elsewhere, which Romford has profited from enormously. Around two thirds of rental property in Romford are apartments which can be found in new build blocks. The rental income ranges from around £1,000 a month for a 1 bed apartment here, to around £1,500 for a 3-bed apartment. This has increased by more than 20% in the past year, indicating that the Romford rental market is looking strong.
As local letting agents Romford wide, we are excited about the investment that the area is due to receive in the near future. The Greater London Authority has earmarked Romford to receive almost £35 million in investment with plans to build more than 3,300 new homes and create around 7,000 new jobs in the area.
