5 homes put up for sale in Watford so far in June

House prices nationally soared by 10.9 per cent annually in May, marking the strongest growth in nearly seven years, according to an index.

The double-digit house price growth recorded in May followed a 7.1 per cent annual increase recorded in April, Nationwide Building Society said.

Across the UK, property values hit a new record average of £242,832 – up by £23,930 compared with 12 months earlier.

Watford’s average house price in March stood at £367,000 according to the Land Industry, and the town has seen some of the largest percentage increases in for sale stock anywhere in the country this year.

GetAgent.co.uk compared the number of homes listed for sale in towns and cities between April 20 and May 12 2020 and April 29 and May 12 this year – and Watford recorded an 821 per cent increase in the number of homes on the market.

Another property appearing on the market in Watford this month is this three-bed detached home in North Watford.

Situated close to the main Leavesden Road, this property in Diamond Road stands out because the rest of the street is almost exclusively terraced homes.

The house, which is next door to the Leavesden Montessori nursery, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a dressing room as well.

It has its own good-sized garden and two off-street parking spaces, which in North Watford, is like gold dust.

It won’t be uncommon to find a flat for sale in Watford in the coming years with hundreds if not thousands already being constructed or planned.

There’s plenty on the market already in the town, including this one in Brewery Mews, which Zoopla believe is “ideal” for a commuter.

The light and airy ground floor flat is within 0.2 miles of Watford Junction and any buyer would have access to a communal garden at the back.
