Perhaps best known for its proximity to travel hub Gatwick Airport, the town and borough of Crawley has actually been inhabited since the stone ages and is a well established market town in its own right! With fantastic transport links and a developing community around the old town outwards, Crawley has grown to become the most important economic and business centre between London and the South Coast.
The growth of the town as a business hub has seen demand for property increase rapidly in the area over the last few years, for both residential homes and commercial premises. However, the location of Gatwick so close also means that short-stay tourism is high in Crawley; as travellers stay upon arrival or departure. Residents in Crawley vary between commuters (it is considered a much better value commuter town than other locations nearby), families, and those who work in the town itself or at the airport. Its excellent transport links means that commuters don’t necessarily head into the capital every day – but also onward to Brighton, Worthing, Guildford and Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Properties and Renovations in Crawley
The local authority has recently invested in several new-build development areas but the most popular type of home in Crawley remains terraced and semi-detached houses. The market is fairly split between buying and renting but the latter is currently undergoing a boom due to affordable housing and superb rental yields; so it’s not uncommon for Refresh Crawley to work with buy-to-let investors converting and amending their properties for tenants. Out into the green belt and surrounding rural areas, farmhouses, innovative new builds and conversions and cottages can be found – often with extended land and large gardens to boot.
There is a common misconception that homeowners in terraced houses and urban semi-detached properties are unable to do much in terms of home renovations. Refresh Crawley disprove this and work regularly on new kitchens, bathrooms, loft conversions and even extensions to such buildings to increase space without compromising on the perks that living in a central urban location brings.
The Refresh Crawley team have years of accumulated experience in renovations of all shapes and sizes – from the installation of space-saving storage solutions to large scale architectural renovation projects, and planning permission filing processes to the conversion of rooms and change-of-layout jobs to optimise on space utilisation. The Refresh approach sees a Project Consultant assigned to exclusively work on the project throughout, from conception to completion. This person will act as a single point of contact for all involved parties and hold accountability to the project plan; delivering fantastic renovations that exceed expectations but never deadlines or budgets.
