Brent is in the property spotlight with strong five-year house price growth, according to a report in the London Evening Standard.
The report says that being London Borough of Culture for 2020 has helped keep an upward trend in values going. The average Brent home now costs £553,000, still lower than much of London. But over the past five years prices have risen 18.5%, more than most of London.
Certain parts of the borough are particular hotspots – Wembley Central is up by 40% in the last five years. While most of the new homes in Wembley are being built for rental by Wembley Park developer Quintain, those on the market for sale are in demand, as Wembley’s zone 4 prices with zone 2 connectivity draws a crowd.
However, even better for value growth than Wembley is Sudbury, where prices have grown 43 per cent in five years. Sudbury Town station is in Zone 4 on the Piccadilly line, and Sudbury and Harrow Road station has trains to Marylebone in 17 minutes.
