How to Choose the Right Property for You in Chadwell Heath


Finding your ideal property in Chadwell Heath

Chadwell Heath is located in north-east Greater London in a suburban area on the boundary of Barking, Dagenham and Redbridge. Its great location is one of the many things that has helped to attract buyers, offering a good balance for those that need to commute to London but seek the suburban peace to switch off and raise a family.

This boundary town also maintains much more reasonably property prices compared to surrounding areas such as Woodford Green and Stratford. However, with the hugely anticipated cross rail looking to be completed by the end of 2020 to early 2021 this is unlikely to remain that way as Chadwell Heath is poised to be an investment hotspot!


It is important no matter what area you are looking to buy in that you research and see how much properties are going for to help you understand what you can realistically expect to buy with your budget. This will help give you an insight into what you can afford and help you to identify things that you may need to compromise on in order to find the right home.


You can change almost anything about a property but the one thing you cannot change is where it is located so it is important to prioritise what your needs are and factor this into your search. For example, if you are going to commute then proximity to the train station or bus services should be considered.

Maybe you have children or are hoping to in the not so distant future? If so then checking out the catchment areas of Chadwell Heaths many great school options is worth looking into as well as nurseries and childcare facilities.

Style of Property

Chadwell Heath features a wide range of property types providing something for everyone! From 1930’s homes with sought after period features to modern, sophisticated new builds and impressive Victorian houses.

There are areas that have a high number of ex authority housing which can offer great value for money as well as lots of private developments due to the continued demand for new properties in this area.

Exterior Space

Whether you are buying your first home, are a young family or a retired couple – people can often prioritise outside space when searching for a property and this is something to consider. Maybe you have children or a dog or perhaps you just want your own garden to sunbathe, have a BBQ and enjoy the outdoors. Alternatively, outside space might mean a much sought after parking space, driveway or garage for your vehicles if you have them. Either way these can come at a premium in areas around London so be realistic in what you can expect and decide how important it is to your search.

If you desire the enjoyment of the great outdoors but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to your dream garden, then remember that Chadwell Heath isn’t a concrete jungle but the borough of Redbridge has around 35 country parks, play areas and plenty of green open spaces to enjoy. The stand out place of note is Hainault Forest Country Park which is set in around 300 acres of beautiful British countryside and boasts a café, play areas and a petting zoo!
