Twickenham has been celebrated as the home of rugby in England since the stadium opened in October 1909. The Thames-side town is much more than that though and is a wonderful place to live, particularly because of the fantastic location. The setting is perfect for people who want to live around 12 miles from the centre of London whilst also surrounding themselves with greenery in a riverside location.
Twickenham is an attractive area for renting. Families prefer homes close to the chosen schools their children will be attending. Young professionals commonly choose flats near the Overground station so they can take advantage of the quick commutes. Central London can be reached in 25 to 40 minutes.
The town offers good value in terms of rental values. This is particularly true in comparison to nearing areas such as Kingston Upon Thames, Richmond and Kew. These neighbours are attractive to residents and they can get the benefit of living close by whilst also enjoying savings.
The area has really good staying power, both in terms of renting and moving on to and up the property ladder. Young professionals can start off renting one of the flats then progress to a larger home when they want to start a family. This can be their home as their children grow and attend school, unless they make the move to purchase nearby.
Landlords in the area can enjoy long term tenancies if they have properties in a good area and keep them in a fantastic condition. This can provide a healthy return and the value of the property will hopefully continue to rise so that selling in the future is even more attractive.
The area certainly is one of the most attractive in the Borough of Kingston Upon Thames. At Finefair we provide a full contingent of services for landlords in the area. We offer things like lettings, maintenance and guaranteed rent, helping property owners to retain their assets and get a stable income from them.
