The Marylebone Property Market - what does the last 10 years show us?!

Date Published 30 November 2015

In the last 10 years, there has been a total of 1,773 properties sold, where the vast majority of this figure is made up of flats (1,597), followed by 139 Terraced properties, 21 semi-detached and lastly 4 detached properties.

Now let`s get to the business side... I undertook some research, on the request of a few Marylebone landlords and I will share these findings not only with them, but also with my valued blog readers. During this 10 year time frame, the average price paid for a property in Marylebone was £877,975, whereas the current average value now stands at £1,430,066 - a high capital growth of 49%! If we examine this even further and go back 20 years, we can see an absolutely massive capital growth of 190%! The Marylebone property market is certainly booming and is definitely a great long term investment; how lovely would it be to just plant some money, come back after a period of time and see your money grow - well this is the reality! Marylebone could be your very own money tree.

Now that we have seen the reap of long-term benefits, let`s also take a look at rental yield and the annual profits that can be generated, should you decide to invest in the Marylebone property market. The current average `asking rent` is £3,947 for 2 bedroom properties and £2,612 for 1 bedroom properties. When we compare these achievable rental figures to the current average values of a Marylebone property, where it is £887,048 for a 1 bedroom, we obtain a rental yield of 3.53%. However, surprisingly when we calculate the rental yield of a averagely valued 2 bedroom property (£1,524,887), we actually see a slightly less annual yield, in the region of 3.10% (a difference of around 14%). Nonetheless, ths is based on the entire Marylebone area and the rental yield differentiates between streets, with respect to 1 and 2 bedroom properties. But at the same time, one street which produces more rental yield than its neighbour, may not produce as much capital growth in the long term. we will be discussing these critical topics as well as magnifying the Marylebone area on a smaller scale, in our next article... so make sure you tune in!
