Dalston, in the London Borough of Hackney, has gained a reputation over the past few years as the location of choice for young creatives and professionals looking for a base in the city. The district has undergone extensive regeneration over the past decade, particularly in the run up to the 2012 Olympics, as Hackney was one of the host boroughs for the Games. Prices have risen, but are still not as high as many other areas of the capital, making it an attractive prospect both for renters and for investors looking for an affordable and productive buy-to-let property to add to their portfolio.
There are many different types of properties to choose from in Dalston, ranging from period properties to modern apartment blocks, giving you plenty of scope to choose a suitable investment and target your particular market of potential renters. With multiple overground rail stations, it’s extremely easy to travel to Central London from Dalston, contributing to the area’s appeal. There are plenty of cool cafes, bars and independent businesses in the district, so if you’re searching for a property that will allow you to effectively target young professional renters, this could be the perfect area to begin your search.
