I have recently been helping a Landlord who has invested in rental properties throughout Thanet and was interested in extending her portfolio, but as a side project she asked me about the property market in her home town of Sandwich. Now we don’t actually cover that area with our property management service but I was more than happy to look into the market and see how it has been performing.
What I found out was quite interesting. The average value of a property in Sandwich is £284,942 which is £48,523 above the average of its neighbouring town of Deal. The most expensive street in Sandwich is St. Georges Place where an average property is worth in excess of £700,000. Only 13 properties have been sold in this street since the summer of 1995.
The most expensive property sold in Sandwich was a fantastic property on Strand Street, which sold for £757,000 in 2008. Quite recently, in April in fact, another property in Strand Street became the second most expensive property in Sandwich at £740,000. The average rent in Sandwich over the last 3 years has been £740 per month. According to land registry 103 properties have been sold in the last 12 months. Overall sale prices in Sandwich were up 11% on the previous year and 4% higher than the peak of 2007, this is slightly better than Deal who boast a 10% rise in the previous year and a 3% increase on the 2007 levels.
