Twickenham Rental Yields: A Good Investment?

  03 Oct 2017

There has been so much talked about the London property market that many people close off when the topic arises again. However, even though the prices in London are higher compared to other parts of the UK, the English capital is still a place that can be a good investment. Yes, the initial cost of buying property is more expensive but with higher rental fees, there is still a chance for investors to make a good return on their expenditure.

It is vital to do a lot of research before buying to let. This means understanding what the area has to offer and what sort of tenants are likely to apply to stay in the home. There is also a need to consider the financial aspects of buying property and then letting the home out. You should find that Twickenham has a lot to offer in all of these aspects, making this South West London destination well worth considering for an investment option.

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
