Living in Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace is an interesting area because it is a location where five different London Boroughs meet and has no defined borders. A single junction sees Bromley, Croydon, Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark all come together. The biggest selling point of the area is it has one of the most successful town centres in the whole of London. It is home to lots of independent shops, restaurants, and cafes.

The town has a great reputation for being more affordable than many other areas in South London. This makes the area popular amongst first time buyers and families who are upgrading to larger homes. With a wide selection of different types of property available there is something to meet any requirement.

One of the most interesting things about the area is Crystal Palace Park. The Victorian pleasure ground is used for a myriad of sporting and cultural events, making it a very popular spot all year round. It is also home to the National Sports Centre and plenty of other great facilities.

Previously we have written about how living close to a park can add premiums to property prices. Surprisingly in Bromley the homes near to Crystal Palace Park can actually come at really affordable prices. This is an interesting case and makes the properties very highly regarded when they become available.

The affordability of the town also translates to a healthy rental market. Renters enjoy the great amenities on offer and the savings they can make on monthly rent over living in more expensive neighbouring areas.

At Finefair we have built a strong reputation the leading provider of guaranteed rent Bromley has. As part of this we can work with landlords in Crystal Palace who want to make arrangements for their properties. With a scheme it is possible to secure rental incomes for a period of time, overcoming challenges with finding tenants and void periods.
