Ideal Location

Ideal Location in Newham

You already know that location is high up on everyone’s wish list. For millennials, the best locations are the ones that allow them to be in the centre of everything. They are looking for upbeat, dynamic neighbourhoods with plenty of shops and entertainment venues and green areas for outdoor sports. On the other hand, they also appreciate peace and quiet and want to live in a neighbourhood that offers safety and a community feel.

To top this off, millennials also want to not spend much time commuting to work. So, they will always appreciate properties located in areas that have good transport links.

Good Layout

A good layout is the second item on any millennial’s wish list. To appeal to a millennial, your property should have an open layout that is suitable for entertaining and also has dedicated spaces for things like work or even working out.

Our estate agents in Newham say that a large, open kitchen is one of the strongest selling points for a property. If you don’t already have one, you should consider refurbishing this space to fit the sociable nature of buyers and renters.

Other aspects millennials appreciate when it comes to layout is an open floor plan, dedicated workspaces, and outdoor areas.


Sustainability Property

Millennials are all about being eco-friendly and they appreciate properties that have sustainability in mind. A sustainable property has features like:

  • solar panels
  • water-saving and recycling systems
  • air source heat pumps
  • energy-efficient utilities
  • excellent insulation
  • underfloor heating
  • electric car charger

Sustainable features are not only appreciated for their ability to reduce the harm we are causing the planet. According to our estate agents in Newham, millennials also care a great deal about them because they want more value for money and want to be able to keep their costs to a minimum with energy-saving technology.

Bonus Spaces

If your property does not have a dedicated workspace, you should consider creating one. With so many millennials now working from home full-time or only part-time, they need space for a home office.

When working from home, millennials also want to have quick and easy access to areas where they can unwind. According to our estate agents in Newham, this can mean a private outdoor space like a garden or terrace or a community space such as a communal garden, a rooftop garden, or proximity to a park.

A property located next to one or even several green spaces will quickly become a favourite for millennials as their lifestyles prioritise physical and mental well-being. They will definitely appreciate a property close to spaces where they can jog, do yoga, or practice their favourite sport.

Other bonus spaces our estate agents in Newham say are high on the list of convenient features are storage spaces and laundry rooms.

Great Design

The design of the property is also important to millennials

The design of the property is also important to millennials. Our estate agents in Newham found that they are mostly looking for properties with clean, simple design. That is not to say that millennials don’t appreciate style. In fact, they very much appreciate bespoke spaces with stylish interior design. However, they still want simplicity to be at the heart of it all.

Future-Proof Extras

We cannot talk about millennials without talking about technology. According to Our estate agents in Newham, properties with future-proof extras like apps that can control the lighting, sound, heating, and even the curtains are highly appreciated. 

How to Attract Millenials

I chose REMAX and Adil specifically to manage my property in the Canning Town area because I could tell the enthusiasm and customer service levels were extremely high. I have not been disappointed given the current market and global situation over the past year and more I could not have asked for a more attentive agent then Adil and the wider REMAX team

I approached REMAX after being dissatisfied with another agent in the area, who was very poorly responsive, negligent with our property, & unable to rent it out for 3 months. From the first interaction, Adil was highly responsive, provided advice on what was required to bring the property back up to standard, and swiftly obtained quotes for all work that needed to be carried out. REMAX oversaw completion of the extensive work & secured tenants in approximately 4 weeks. I initially contacted REMAX, amongst other agents, due to their high Google ratings. Based on my own experience, I rate the level of customer service & professionalism 5 star. Thank you Adil & Team.

I have just secured a new apartment using the REMAX Canning Town Branch, and during the whole process, Mr Masood Qaiser was very helpful. I contacted him through Facebook regarding the available property. He was very professional, good communicator. Patient and reliable. Explained all the processes and followed up with emails and calls, which helped put my mind at ease and helped me throughout the whole process, making the process smooth and easy. Even he helped me with switching the bills. So I very much recommend this agency. I had a positive experience with them.

I saw so many properties to rent in Facebook . You have so many advertises and when I ask Julian if they are still available He doesn't reply to me. Even not only him ..There is another guy I can't remember his name and he doesn't answered on my messages as well. This is the reason to give you only one star

I've used Remax Canning Town Branch for Letting my apartment in Rathborne Market. Mr Rizwan is reliable and goes the extra mile to help and secure the professional tenants as I wanted. On top of his knowledge and experience, Rizwan is kind and personable, a pleasure to work with him, and I recommend REMAX wholeheartedly.
