WATFORD Property Investment Guide

For property investors who are researching Watford property and want to know the facts before investing.

Watford Property Investment

"Both the London Overground and the London Metropolitan lines serve Watford. That’s two more lines than I can think of than in some places of London itself. In fact Watford is so well connected I can’t believe it isn’t part of London already!


Seriously, I can’t say this enough, it’s just 20 minutes by train from Watford Junction to London Euston. That’s prime commuter territory. And now there’s talk about a Crossrail connection. Well if that happens you can kiss goodbye to affordable property prices. So if you weren’t considering Watford before, you might want to rethink that strategy before someone beats you to it."

Where are your properties?

Our Developer partners build across the UK so we can source in any area although primarily Britain and our preference is in the best areas of London, Manchester and Birmingham. Our speciality is targeting properties in the best areas and those undergoing massive regeneration.

Whilst our website has many developments on it we also have a variety of off market private options which developer's wish to keep totally off market, these could be units they want to see outside their usual marketing channels. 

One of our favourite strategies is to get in early while the price is low while working with developers who operate an incremental price increase policy as they build. This means investors can see growth throughout the build.

How much does it cost?

Nothing until you buy a property. We are a buyers agent and therefore look to get you the best price and effortlessly guide you through the process. Many properties we negotiate discounts off their values in these cases we may charge an Agents fee but many do not. We also will charge you to manage the property on an ongoing basis. All of these charges will be given to you before you make your decision. 

In fact, as part of our commitment we prepare a Two Year Cash Flow Worksheet for every property you purchase, giving you a true picture of the likely cash flow during your first 2 years of ownership. Speak to the team about running through one of our cash flows.

It's this level of transparency that is missing from most Estate Agents who provide very light-on details.

What is the buying process?

Once you select a property and are happy to proceed you will be introduced to your dedicated Progression Manager who will organise the finance and conveyance for you. They can guide you and support you with the various forms that need to be filled out. 

Closer to completion we will organise furniture and fittings and begin the marketing of the property so you have a tenant in the shortest possible time.

Take all the hassle out of property investing

A great company to use to take all the hassle out of property investing. All the staff are very friendly, helpful and most importantly well educated within all types of property investing. My personal experience with Ryan who is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and take all the pressure out of what can be a potentially stressful process, even when that process may fall within their own holiday!

Adam

Everything was dealt with utmost efficiency and professionalism.

When I moved to Baroque Gardens in August 2016, I expected to be in for a rough ride.
The agent responsible for the initial part of the rental process was Crest Residential and they took a long time to sort each step from the offer to the signature of the agreement, making for a very stressful move.
As soon as Ezytrac took over, though, everything was dealt with utmost efficiency and professionalism.
During the first part of my tenancy, property coordinator Machaela was my first point of contact at EzyTrac, who handled my initial questions always answering to my e-mails promptly and politely.
I stayed almost two years in that property and during that time I never had any problem with EzyTrac whatsoever.
When I decided to move on, lettings coordinator Sarah took me through all the steps of ending the tenancy, making for a smooth and easy transition.

During my last month at the property, when the property was put back of the market, a reasonable number of viewings were scheduled at sensible times. The agents showing the property were friendly and quick causing almost no inconvenience.

The inventory check-out was fair and the rent deposit was returned on time with reasonable pre-agreed deductions.
Overall, working with EzyTrac was a very positive experience and I reassure that moving to a property managed by them will result in a straight forward and peaceful tenancy.

Mr O - Tenant

Really happy with the service.

My intercom was not working and Holly worked tirelessly to get the relevant people/company to get it fixed. There was a very VERY long email trail us being passed from one person to another but eventually, Holly ensured the correct people for the job were finally contacted and set up the appointment immediately. Really really happy with the service.

Wish I kick started working with them earlier

I started working with Gladfish in April-2016. I was allocated Ryan as the account manager. He is absolutely brilliant. I was looking for someone that I could trust to give me the correct advise and help me fast track into property investment. Ryan excelled at this. He was also very accommodating of my working hours, and we've had several calls after 8 pm. I have no regrets working with Gladfish. I only wish I kick-started working with them earlier.

Jag

Available to advise

I have mainly dealt with Ryan over the past few years and he has been fantastic in helping me build a portfolio. Lovely to have someone so professional and available to advise on these matters, when you are so short on free time.

Libby

Reached 1M pounds mark in my portfolio

Brett's and his team's knowledge of investing in property has been very impressive, as well as eye-opening. They got me into a new way of thinking, I now think differently from what I did last year. My knowledge has vastly grown in working with them. I don't think of Brett as a Property Consultant. I think of him more as a friend who I can trust to look after my interests. As for results well, I've almost reached the million pounds mark in my portfolio, not bad for a couple from Glasgow.

Wullie & Angie

Communication

Fantastic experience so far with Ezytrac, we had a few pressing issues that were sorted and coordinated very quickly and efficiently by Robert. His communication was fantastic throughout and we would be happy for him to deal with any property issues going forward. Highly recommended.

Jessica B - Tenant

Great interface with developers

As landlords who work abroad, Caroline has been invaluable in keeping up communication with developers on our behalf. Our purchase went smoothly due to her hard work.
