Location is one of the most important factors to consider when buying a property – it’s all well and good finding a place that meets your criteria in terms of size and style, but if it’s not where you want it to be, it’s never going to be a dream property!
Your potential buyers will be looking at your Croydon property with this in mind, so you want the sale to be handled by someone who knows the local area inside and out.
Croydon has gone from strength to strength in recent times, and is an increasingly attractive choice for those hoping to avoid the eye-watering prices of Central London. It’s no surprise, then, that it’s topped a recent list of first-time buyer hotspots, with the price of starter-homes rising by almost 20% in 2016. It’s also one of the most in-demand areas of the country, second only to Edinburgh when it comes to estate agent enquiries. Prices in general have risen 7.73% over the last year.
It’s an extensive area, stretching from Thornton Heath to Addington and further south still to Purley and Kenley. The town is served by the only tram service in the South-East, and is home to one of the most exciting developments it’s seen in years: Boxpark Croydon, which is home to restaurants, bars and shops, all housed in refashioned shipping containers. Once this gives way to a huge planned regeneration scheme, the town will welcome a new £1.4 billion Westfield Mall.
It’s no surprise that property in Croydon is so in demand, so whether you’re selling a bijou bungalow in Bromley, a cosy Caterham cottage or a family home in Forestdale, you’ll want an online estate agent that knows how to maximise its locational appeal.
