Why invest in Stevenage?
London commuter towns such as Stevenage have in recent years, experienced a phenomenal rate of growth in property prices. Between June 2007 and June 2017, the average house price in Stevenage increased by 58.5% from £181,475 to £287,692 according to HouseSimple.com. Having said that, its proximity to London means it is still an affordable option for those who have been priced out of the capital. One bedroom flats in Kings Cross are selling for £675,000, and as that is beyond most people’s budgets, it makes sense that more people are choosing to buy property within easy commuting distance.
There is already a direct train to King’s Cross – an area that has seen much rejuvenation and is now the home place of Google’s £1bn head office, that takes just 26 minutes. Stevenage is also about to become a lot better connected, with the Great Northern railway line being extended to connect Stevenage with other stations in London such as Farringdon and London Bridge, as well as places south of London such as Gatwick Airport and Brighton. We predict that with these improved connections to other London terminals and on towards Sussex, appetite for property and accommodation in the Hertfordshire town will soar.
