After a year of lockdowns, demand for property in Hayes has rocketed. Buyers who want to buy a home in the area are being added to waiting lists.

Our Hayes estate agents look into what is driving this demand and what makes now a superb time to sell your property.

Why is Hayes so popular with buyers?

With wonderful amenities such as its green open spaces and pretty canals, plus the proximity of great transport links, Hayes is both a great place to live in and to get to and from.

Transport links mean Paddington is just 20 minutes away and the arrival of Crossrail means Bond Street will also be less than 20 minutes from Hayes & Harlington.

With the regeneration that the area has undergone over the last 10 years, people are flocking to this now thriving and attractive London location.

What has triggered the spike in demand for homes in Hayes?

Great amenities & transport links make Hayes an attractive place to live

While Hayes was already a very popular area pre-pandemic, its abundance of local amenities have been highlighted during the lockdowns of the last year.

People are now drawn to the space this area offers both in properties themselves and the recreational spaces nearby. This desire for more space has increased sales prices in Hayes & Harlington.

When you factor in the pent-up demand after the lockdowns, the government 95% mortgage incentive and the stamp duty holiday, all this means that demand has rocketed in the area.
