Harlsden in the London Borough of Brent has some of the best prospects of any area in the capital. It is the focus of huge regeneration work and will also become one of the major transport hubs in the capital when Crossrail and HS2 arrive. With good schools and thousands of new homes expected in the coming years, it is definitely an area worth looking at.
The housing market for buyers is interesting. There are plenty of attractive roads of three and four bedroom Victorian terraces. Roads of later homes are available too, suiting buyers who prefer 20s and 30s styling. Many of the 1960s tower blocks have been demolished and replaced with lower-lying apartment buildings and houses.
The rental market in Harlsden is typical of many central areas. Most of the properties available are flats, whether in converted Victorian or 20s or 30s homes or modern blocks. There are said to be three times as many flats available to rent in comparison to the number of homes. Naturally this gives an indication that the area is focused more on attracting young professionals.
With such a wide array of flats on offer there is plenty of work for our team at Finefair. We have a great reputation for offering invaluable block management in Brent. We adapt our services to suit the specifics of the portfolio, ensuring we effectively take care of all public areas within a building as well as individual homes.
The thing that surprises many of our clients about our block management is that we can actually save them money. With all of the properties managed by the same provider there are economies of scale to benefit from. This also makes it easier for us to schedule works such as inspections and maintenance.
Investing in Harlsden could be a fantastic opportunity for long term rewards. As regeneration and development continues more people will be drawn to the area and prices could be pushed up. With professional services like our block management in Brent clients can stand the best chance to benefit if this occurs.
