Over the last decade, thousands of people have sold their London properties to fund a move to quieter surroundings. At times, the pace of living in the capital can get too much. With the excellent transport links, it’s still possible to live in a neighbouring county and visit London. People often commute to work every day from places like Guildford with a travel time of an hour each way.
However, there are lots of excellent reasons to retain your property in London rather than selling up. It’s a growing trend amount ex-Londoners to keep one foot in London, at least on the property ladder. Many people are retaining their houses and apartments and buying a second home or renting.
The Advantages of Retaining Your Property in London –
There is any number of reasons why people relocate. Some get job offers in counties close to London, and it makes more sense to move there. Other times, it can be for family reasons or just to live somewhere quieter than London. No matter what your reasons are, you should consider keeping your London residence
If you have a property in a sought-after part of London, your house or apartment is a solid investment. It won’t just retain its value. Even during modest housing market trends, many affluent parts of London bounce back and make steady profits.
There is also the issue of returning to London if your relocation doesn’t work out. If you sell up, you must start again by finding a suitable property. Buying a new home is not an easy task, and you may end up paying a similar price for a property that is substandard in comparison to your current one.
A lot of people who retain their London home often put the property in the rental market. This represents an excellent opportunity to make a second income, which could fund the rental or purchase of a second house or apartment in your new location.
