comes to looking at areas to invest in, your investment range will be limited
by a number of things. This will include
whether you intend to be a landlord and manage everything yourself, or whether
you plan to hire someone to do it for you.
If you wish to become a landlord, then we would advise not getting a
property that is too far from where you live.

5 Things To Consider When Searching
For Rental Property
To help a
first-time investor, we have come up with a simple list of 5 things that you
should consider when looking for a property investment purchase:
- Local Area - The local
area is one of the most important factors that you should investigate
first. The quality of the area will
influence both the types of tenants you attract and how often you experience
vacancies. Carshalton, Surrey, is one of
the best areas to invest in the southeast with the scenic and picturesque
Carshalton Village being a main focal point.
Carshalton benefits from excellent transport links throughout Surrey and
further afield, as well as a wide range of other amenities including shops,
bars and restaurants right on your doorstep.
If you are looking for houses to rent in Carshalton, then a great opportunity awaits.
- Crime Rates - This really
goes without saying, as no one will want to live in an area that has a high
reported crime rate. By going to your
local police website or public library, you can get accurate crime statistics
for local neighbourhoods. When looking
for a house to rent in Carshalton, you will be pleased to know that Carshalton,
Surrey and Sutton have a crime rate that is much lower than the average for the
Metropolitan Police force area. This
makes Carshalton one of the safest places for your tenants to live and work.
- Job Opportunities - Areas that
have greater employment opportunities will help attract more tenants. Employment data can be sourced easily online
or via your local library and again, Carshalton is one of the best choices. The number of people out of work is well
under the national average for England, in fact it is more than 10% lower,
suggesting higher salaries than the average in the area.
- Local Schools - One thing
to consider is that your tenants may have or be planning to have children, so
they will need to live in close proximity to decent schools and colleges. Ensuring the schools have a good reputation
will help increase the value of the property and the return you will get from
it. Here in Carshalton, we have a
variety of local schools and colleges with many receiving 4 or 5 star reports
from Ofsted inspections and over 90% in performance ratings for Key Stages 2
and 3. To find out more about schools in
Carshalton, take a look at our article: Schools And The Carshalton Property Market.
- Rental Rates - The rent
you make from your investment property is your bread and butter; so knowing
what the average rental prices are in the area is vital to getting a good
return. With the average rental rate of
around £1,500 a month in Carshalton, we know that you will see a great return
on your investment purchase. Remember to
