Overseas Property FB Live - London HarrowOverseas Property | 4 Feb 2021
Co-organised by The Standard and Sing Tao The Standard Overseas Property Online, the Overseas Property Facebook Live gathers insights from industry professionals and introduces outstanding property projects from top markets around the world.
In the latest episode of Overseas Property FB live held on February 3, Manci Man and Vincent Li – Co-Owner and Sales Consultant of Century 21 Goodwin (International) Property Consultants – shared their expert views on Britain’s economic outlook and investment tips.
Britain, as one of the hottest investment hotspots among Hong Kong investors, has witnessed a strong performance in its property market amidst the current global recession and pandemic. The latest data show there has been a 2-3% increase in transactions in the South, and a 5-6% rise in the North.
For impending investors interested in the UK property market, Li recommends two boroughs: Harrow and Barnet.
Harrow has, in recent years, outperformed the London average, drawing more and more local and overseas buyers for its selection of stunning new homes, great schools and excellent transport links.
Another appeal of Harrow is its plentiful green spaces and cultural attractions. From Stanmore Country Park to Harrow Arts Centre, there are always relaxing and mesmerizing spaces for you and your family to enjoy. Traditionally seen as a family location, Harrow is in close proximity to a wide selection of schools rated from good to outstanding by Ofsted.
Situated in the heart of Harrow, Eastman Village is an exciting new residential quarter surrounded by excellent transport connections and steeped in local history. As a landmark set to undergo revitalization, Eastman Village has created a community of 1,000 new homes amidst the 5,000 new homes as a part of the ‘Heart of Harrow’ regeneration scheme.
Developed by Barratt London – a renowned developer established in 1985 that has earned a 5-Star rating with the Home Builders Federation for 11 consecutive years - Eastman Village features one to three-bedroom homes, ranging from 541 – 1,216 sq. ft. Each abode has its own private outside terrace or balcony.
Residents will find themselves conveniently located a short distance from a range of amenities, including shops, gymnasium, supermarket and restaurant.
Eastman Village is situated at Harrow – reputed for its outstanding education – with 98% of the surrounding schools rated from good to outstanding by Ofsted, including the 450-year-old Harrow School.
Situated at zone 5, Eastman Village spoils its residents with the connectivity of zone 2, meaning that the development is linked to a new network of footpaths and cycleway; tube and London Overground service. It is just a 10-minute stroll to Harrow & Wealdstone station, and a 13-minute ride to Euston with West Midlands Trains. Residents can reach universities in London, the city centre and financial districts all within 30 minutes.
With a 999-year leasehold, the development is estimated to be completed by 2021 to 2022. One, two, three-bedroom units are priced from £280,000; £400,000; and £500,000 respectively.
Man emphasizes that regeneration areas are excellent investment choices due to their strong rental yields and capital growth potentials. Harrow, in particular, offers solid returns for buy-to-let investors with a rental yield as high as 4.5%. “As Harrow is still under ongoing development, the borough is rich in potential and its property price is set to boom in the future.”
