Investing in Woolwich

Woolwich, on the southern banks of the river Thames, is a place where the past and the present sit together in harmony. It’s an active community for young families and young professionals, with good schools and plenty to do. There is easy access to the heart of London via the Underground and DLR, and there’s a ferry service too. Crossrail is significantly increasing the accessibility of Woolwich.

The vast recent and current transformation of the area is reflected in the property scene, but also in the high street where eateries, pavement cafes and coffee shops are commonplace. One of the best development projects is Royal Arsenal Riverside, delivering in the region of 5,000 homes, a hotel, office and retail space and a community centre.

Woolwich has an overall average property price of £444,764, more expensive than Plumstead and Shooters Hill but cheaper than Charlton, according to Rightmove’s most recent figures. Most properties sold last year were flats.

Should you commission a home survey if you’re a cash buyer?

With cash purposes, there’s no need to have a mortgage valuation – without a lender involved, the risk is all yours. In order to protect your financial interests, we would strongly recommend that you have a home survey carried out to make your fully aware of the condition of the building, and any issues with it, so that you can make an intelligent purchase decision.

I can't say enough good things about Able - not just on the survey quality, but also on the excellent communication. They knew I was in a hurry, and they made sure they gave me the earliest possible slot (about a week after paying). On the day, the surveyor kindly called me and spent half an hour talking through what he found, to put my mind at ease. The next day, I got a summary of the survey. And a couple of days later, the full survey report. It was incredibly detailed, and answered all my questions. It also listed the costs of each repair. A few weeks later, and after the searches came back, I emailed Able with a list of questions. A couple of hours later, the surveyor personally called me and spent an hour going through each point step by step. At no point did I feel rushed, and he spent time reassuring me about each item I was worried about. All in all, dealing with Able was the best experience I have had in the home-buying process, and I would be delighted to use them again if I ever buy another place.

Jack did a great job for us and was available for any follow-up questions in a timely manner. We got a thorough and professional report at a much more reasonable cost than other firms. Thank you!

One of the best people you want to use when considering buying a property. Communication was second to none and the report provided was detailed and gave me the assurance I was looking for. Very reasonable price for a first time buyer.

I am happy with service they provided. I was in dark regarding a house that I am going to buy but they stepped in and shed some lights and gave me some insights about the condition of the property. They are resposive nd helpful. I am happy with their service and also I have to mention that their price was reasonable.

My second time using their services, this time with surveyor Jack. As always: professional report, prompt response with follow up call. Honest (refunded unnecessary part of the survey). Got returning customer discount. Absolutely nothing to complain. They are ABLE, as the name says.

I felt good because of the impeccable services i received. For keeping me in loop all the way is very professional even when you couldn't reach the agent. The report was very detailed and the attention to details was very impressive. The Initial report i first received was very commendable. Great job and keep it up.
