Yes, I said ‘rentirement’, not retirement … rentirement

and it relates to the 301 (and growing) Hounslow people, who don’t own their own Hounslow home but rent their home, privately from a buy to let landlord and who are currently in their 50’s and early to mid-60’s.

The truth is…..

As I am sure you are aware, one the best things about my job as an agent is helping Hounslow landlords with their strategic portfolio management.

Gone are the days of making money by buying any old Hounslow property to rent out or sell on. Nowadays, property investment is both an art and science. The art is your gut reaction to a property, but with the power of the internet and the way the Hounslow property market has gone in the last 11 years…..

For the last 10 years, every private rental property must have an Energy-Performance-Certificate (EPC) rating.  The property is given an energy rating, very similar to those on washing machines and fridges with the rainbow coloured graph, of between A to G (A being the most efficient and G the worst). New legislation comes in to force next spring (2018)

I received a very interesting call the other day from a Hounslow resident. He declared he was a Hounslow homeowner, retired and mortgage free.

He stated how unaffordable Hounslow’s rising property prices were and that he worried how the younger generation of Hounslow could ever afford to buy? He went on to ask if it was right for landlords to make money on the inability of others to buy property and if, by buying a buy to let property, Hounslow landlords are denying the younger generation the ability to in fact buy their own home.

Rents in the private rental sector in Hounslow will increase sharply during the next five years. Even though the council house waiting list has decreased, the number of new council and housing association properties being built is at a 70 year low. The government crusade against buy-to-let landlords….

Hello there, Hounslow Property buyers

I dont normally post properties that we have on, but if I saw this with another agent and not with us then I would write about it so here we go…

So we have been successful in taking on this property in the Heart of Hounslow.

Why do I think this is a good buy, Well have a look at the location! then have a look at the regeneration plan for the surrounding area of this flat.
