Estate Agents in Barking

Alex Neil Estate Agents in Barking were established as a company in 1984 and have been successfully providing residential sales and lettings services across the locality.

Historically Barking was a large parish in Essex and it contained one of the most influential nunneries in the country, Barking Abbey, which was founded in the year 666. It was rumoured that the alleged existence of a medieval mental asylum attached to the Abbey may be why Barking is often cited as the origin of the phrase ‘barking mad’.

Now in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and located around 9 miles east of central London, the suburban town is facing regeneration. A £42 million investment is being injected into the town centre as part of the Mayors plans for the development of 30 Housing Zones in London. The investment will advance the towns profile, improve local transport, create employment, boost the creative industries, plus much more. The Barking Riverside is also receiving investment and is one of the UK’s largest regeneration sites, the masterplan is to create an exciting new riverside community.

Barking’s housing market will improve from the rejuvenation as the town centre will receive over 4000 new homes and Barking Riverside over 10,000 new homes. The homes will be built in mixed styles so that different lifestyles are catered for.

In support of the housing developments, the construction of a new extension of the London Overground to Barking Riverside will begin in 2018. This will link locals to employment opportunities further afield in central London, Isle of Dogs and Stratford, whilst providing a sustainable alternative to car travel.

Barking has many schools including primary and secondary, special schools, religious schools and grammar schools. Ofsted ratings have been generally positive with many schools attaining ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ scores.

The creation of new living spaces, jobs and transport links makes Barking an attractive place to find a home. If you’re looking to find out the value of your home, to purchase, to sell or to rent a property then our highly motivated teams would love to help.
