Maidenhead has a population of 85,000 and is considered to be an affluent area in close proximity to London. The regeneration of the town centre will make a significant improvement to Maidenhead’s retail opportunities and social scene, as it will include a number of new bars and restaurants. Neighbouring town Slough is the home of the largest trading estate in Europe, creating a constant flow of demand for both renting and buying. With such great potential, Maidenhead is a key area for property investment!

Maidenhead hosts major corporations such as Adobe, 3 Mobile, Toys R Us, Abbvie, GSK and Johnson & Johnson. As well as this, Maidenhead is well known for its transport links into London which include a fast train taking 23 minutes to Paddington, M4 access and the pending introduction of the 14 billion pound project Crossrail.

Maidenhead is also recognised for its schooling and in particular the high standard of primary schools. There are 13 primary schools, 5 secondary schools and another 5 independent schools to choose from, making it a popular location for families.

Area Guide:

Maidenhead is relatively small, but popular because of the reasons mentioned above, so this leads to heavy demand but limited supply and premiums rents and resales can be achieved.

Maidenhead is made up of a selection of houses built predominately in the 60s and 70s, with many detached properties; whilst in the town centre Victorian properties and new build apartment blocks are increasingly popular since the announcement of Crossrail.

There are two new proposed developments. Kings Triangle (The Landing) will consist of bars, cafés, restaurants and commercial space, with the potential of additional residential being added later. The second development is the Waterway, which will consist of bars and restaurants and will restore that particular area into something aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable for local residents.

Investment Strategies that Work and Why:

House of Multiple Occupancy:

Lack of supply but big demand has led to rooms in Maidenhead letting for a premium. Investors are securing as much as £750pcm for double bedrooms and are enjoying the high cash flow returns. It is important to realise that although the room market is a healthy one, the price of property has risen significantly, so the yields are still in the region of 10%.

Long-Term Buy To Lets:

Without doubt the prices have risen significantly and this had led to lower yields being secured in Maidenhead, but there is still the possibility of achieving in the region of 5%, but the advantage is that there is still plenty of capital growth anticipated over the coming years. In the past two years there has been growth of up to 30% on particular stock.

Title Splits:

Resale values are so strong that it makes sense to convert and create multiple units where possible. Based on the level of demand and lack of supply, Maidenhead is crying out for more accommodation and by carrying out a conversion, you can take advantage of this and benefit from a significant financial reward.
