There is good news for Hounslow buy to let landlords as ‘top of the range’ well-presented properties are getting really decent rents compared to a year ago however, this rise in rents is thwarting many potential first time buyers from saving for both a deposit and money for a rainy day. On top of this, there is also a shortage of Hounslow homes coming on the market thus adding fuel to the slowdown and affecting not just Hounslow first time buyers but also those going up the housing ladder.

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.

In my blog about the Hounslow Property Market I mostly only talk about two of the three main sectors of the local property market, the ‘private rented sector’ and the ‘owner occupier sector’. However, as I often stress when talking to my clients, one cannot forget the third sector, that being the ‘social housing sector’ (or council housing as some people call it).
