Why Commuter Belt Property?
The London commuter belt is the urban area surrounding London, from which it is possible to commute to work into London. London’s larger urban zones population exceeds 11.9 million, the largest in Europe and growing year on year as Londoner’s move outwards looking for value for money.
London’s commuter belt has no set boundaries; it grows as housing is developed and local transportation links into the capital are improved. The belt currently covers most of the South East and part of the East of England, including Essex, Kent, Berkshire, Surrey, Hertfordshire, and Buckinghamshire.
Property along London’s commuter belt is poised to have the highest capital growth in the UK with prime property prices in the suburbs expected to see 26.3pc growth over the next five years. This is the first time in the last decade that property price growth in London’s suburbs is expected to outpace the city centre. The dominant reason for this is that the influx of foreign capital into the city centre has pushed young professionals and families out to the commuter belt. Interestingly in contrast to London where property prices have seen 36.8% growth since 2007 property along London’s commuter belt have seen just 6.6% growth above their 2007 levels. This leaves much potential for growth in house prices along London’s commuter belt as the ripple of effect of pricing increases in London takes effect and Londoners look towards prime commuter belt towns for better value for money.
