The local housing market in Bracknell

Our market update in September

Traditionally September is a busy month in the lettings market and following in the same vein as July and August, this year September has been busier than ever!

Tenant demand is still strong since the post lockdown rush, with us registering a record number of new applicants last month. Although the weather is turning, outside space is still a popular request from Tenants. After being couped up inside for most of the Summer, having access to a garden (shared or private) or a balcony is a huge attraction to tenants.

With more and more of us having to work from home, having somewhere to set up a home office is also a popular request right now. Because of the tenant demand for these two things, properties with an area to work from and outside space are letting the quickest.

Properties that allow pets are also still extremely popular and Landlord’s who accept them are also able to add a small premium to the monthly rent.

Last month, over 75% of properties listed in Bracknell have been let. Quite interestingly, there has been one more dominant postcode of the two that cover Bracknell, which has been RG12. Over 83% of properties listed in RG12 were converted to agreed tenancies in comparison to just 56% in RG42.

This is largely down to the popular areas of Forest Park and Martins Heron. Set a stone’s throw apart and less than a 10-minute drive from the M3 motorway and walking distance to the train station within Martins Heron itself. These locations have proved to be two of the most popular in Bracknell for many years, although it’s not just down to the fantastic travel links to London. There is a number of good schools within close proximity, a Tesco superstore and even a top of the range gym and health club.

For anyone consider investing in this location or having a property already that they would consider letting, please get in touch so we can discuss the array of excellent tenants that we have interested in your area.

The local area of Bracknell

Why Bracknell is a great place to live!

The pleasant town of Bracknell is located approximately 11 miles south-east of Reading and has been voted one of the top 20 places to live in Great Britain. Bracknell is also in close vicinity to Ascot, Crowthorne, Camberley, Maidenhead and Windsor, allowing easy access to a plethora of excellent facilities.

Bracknell town centre has recently undergone a £240 million-pound redevelopment programme to create a new modern town centre which is so impressive it won 'Development of the Year' at the Revo Awards in 2017. Regenerating the town has provided people living in and around the area with over 70 new shops and restaurants in the new shopping centre, The Lexicon. The redevelopment has also provided 1,000 new homes, a new police station and bus station. A large part of the development was focused on improving the current High Street buildings and the restoration and extension of a local landmark – The Bull public house. Since undergoing development, Bracknell has risen in the retail rankings to number 33, from 255 prior to redevelopment.
