Hounslow is currently considerably cheaper than central West London, which is good news for residential buyers as well and investors. With constant significant investment into the area from major developers this makes it one of Central London’s most appealing places to invest and live.

My analysis has shown that up to the end of the last quarter, Hounslow first time buyers purchased 105 Hounslow properties.  With wages rising at 2.8%, unemployment at a low rate of 4.2% (down from 4.6% from a year earlier and the joint lowest since 1975), national GDP rising at 1.87% and inflation at 2.3%, tied in with indifferent house price growth (compared to a few years ago), this has given first time buyers a chance to get a foot hold on the Hounslow property market.
