Due to all the hype surrounding the ‘London Ripple’, I thought I would look at how this is affecting us down here in Thanet.
The London property market has gone a bit mad recently to say the least (yes, even more than usual). I have been keeping my eye on this as friends of mine are currently trying to get a mortgage to purchase in London. They are currently renting in Hackney and would, within reason and financial constraints, like to stay in the area. So I did some research for them and found that property in Hackney, in ONE year, has increased by over £100,000, around 17.5% annual increase!
This got me wondering to what degree this has affected us here in Thanet. So after doing some more research I found that in the month from March to April of this year, property has increased by nearly 3% on average in the Isle of Thanet. From April 2013 to April 2014 the average price has increased by just over 5% - not bad for those BTL investors that are also getting average yields of 4.9%! Giving an annual return of around 10%. If anyone knows of a bank savings account that can offer this, let me know!
