There’s always been a debate when it comes to renting vs buying your home. So, here we’ve brought together 8 benefits to consider when looking at your next move.



Buying your own home allows you to make décor changes you’re usually not permitted to make when you rent somewhere. Any investment in to changes in your own home benefit you too, and not a landlord.



Buying your home is an investment, which you benefit from solely when you make improvements to it or house prices increase in the location where you live. Croydon in particular is thriving with the benefit of a £5.25billion regeneration programme firmly underway and the construction of a new Westfield set to begin in 2019.


Rent Prices vs Mortgages

Each monthly payment you make with a mortgage counts towards your investment, whereas with rent you don’t reap the same rewards. You’ll also find that mortgage prices are highly competitive or could even be lower than what you would pay when you rent.


Commute to London?

It’s so easy from Croydon to travel into central London for work or a social occasion. With trains from East Croydon station taking just 17 minutes to reach Victoria, plus the Thames City Link to Kings Cross providing fast and frequent journeys to keep up with the capital.


London vs Croydon

Everyone knows that house prices in London are particularly high, making it out of reach for many first-time buyers. Choosing Croydon allows you to step onto the property ladder and with Leon House, get more for your money with the spacious apartments we have on offer.


The Croydon Social Scene

Croydon has seen a resurgence in recent years with a thriving cultural and social scene. A £3million investment in to the town’s restaurant quarter has helped deliver an outstanding array of cuisine with a host of eateries and bars located within walking distance of Leon House. Over the next 5 years, you’ll be able to watch and enjoy a growing social life, retail scene and growing metropolitan (which only adds to your investment should you decide to move).
