   Here’s why your next buy-to-let property should be in SW11.

We’re flying the flag for Battersea and have many happy tenants who love living in SW11. If you need any more convincing on the area’s investment merits, read on:-

  1. Improved transport links - two new Tube stations running on the Northern line – Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station - are set to open in 2020.
  2. Power Station redevelopment – the iconic Grade II* listed structure is transforming into a residential, social and employment hub to rival the West End.
  3. More employment opportunities - the American Embassy is open for business and Apple is planning a new headquarters at Battersea Power Station, taking enough space for 3,000 employees.
  4. Increased population – the Office for National Statistics revealed Wandsworth (the borough in which Battersea sits) has the highest level of internal London migration, with over 13,100 people arriving from within the capital.
  5. Choice of properties - Battersea offers an excellent selection of properties, from turn-key ready new builds to charming period homes – something to appeal to every tenant.
  6. Green space – with 200-acres of green space, a zoo and a brilliant events programme, Battersea Park is a major draw for tenants.
  7. Thriving social scene – arts galleries and markets are joined by a plethora of bars and restaurants for the social savvy tenant. Northcote Road is a particular highlight.
  8. Premium rents – homes to let with a view of the River Thames repeatedly command a higher rent than similar properties located further inland.
  9. Excellent schooling – there are exceptional state and independent choices, endorsed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who chose Thomas’s Battersea for Prince George.
  10. It looks even better in real life than it does on screen - although we filmed the best of Battersea for our video, there’s no substitute for visiting in person. Give us a call and we’d be delighted to take you on a tour.
