Investing in Ascot

The area is also growing as a commuter location, with a huge inflow of residents over the past few years, the majority moving from the surrounding boroughs, however we have also seen with an increase in buyers moving from four London Boroughs accounting for 10% of total inflow of residents.

Over the last year house prices in Ascot have outperformed the wider region, with the average house price sitting at £734,986, more than double the Southeast average of £383,392.

Whilst the rental market is set to remain competitive, with limited stock keeping prices level. Ascot recorded a year-on-rear rental growth of 11.2% and 43% rental growth over the last five years, again sitting higher than the south east.
