New Homes in Redbridge
Amongst the leafier suburbs of London comprising the Fairlop Waters Country Park to the North, Wanstead Flats to the South and a number of parks scattered all around such as Valentines Park, Claybury Park and Seven Kings Park, it is easy to understand the appeal of the Greater London borough for families and professionals looking for the countryside feel whilst still being within commuter reach of central London. Because of Redbridge being a bit further out from Zones 1 and 2 than other boroughs, prices are still affordable, but they’re rising fast.
If you’re looking for a good-value property with great rental potential, now could be the ideal time to invest in Redbridge.
