Southend-on-Sea has an estimated population of 176,000. It is a key economic driver in South Essex; substantial levels of investment have seen significant redevelopment of the town centre and seafront with a major expansion programme in place for Southend Airport.

Southend offers direct road and rail links between London and the coast creating a highly desirable and affordable location for commuters.

The town’s State Of The Art University (University of Essex) in the heart of our town centre has further increased market demand for centrally located rental properties.

If you are considering making your property available to tenants claiming housing benefit there is increased demanding this area of the market. Recent caps in the local housing allowance (LHA) payments from the government has resulted in London rental properties becoming increasingly unaffordable, forcing tenants further out to surrounding areas. With Southend so close to London but more affordable, it’s another powerful reason to invest in Southend-on-Sea.

Pace has several investment properties for sale in the Southend-on-Sea area. Please contact us now to discuss your requirements.
