This is the perfect area for families, working professionals and those looking for a more relaxed lifestyle. Again, with excellent transport routes, local primary and secondary schools, fantastic parks and a mix of accommodation, this is seen as the ‘quieter’ part of the city. It provides a more local feel, with local shops, cafes and still a lot of choice when it comes to shopping. With the local seafront and ‘Hove Lawns’ providing a great space to enjoy, these areas are well renowned in the city as a hive of activity in the summer.
Throughout the whole city there is a great mix of properties to suit everyone’s needs and tastes. With a mix of modern and traditional buildings, there is being some extensive development planned for both the city centre and the outskirts. The surrounding towns benefit from the popularity of Brighton and Hove, with increased interest and developments in places like Shoreham, Lancing, Saltdean and Peacehaven.
This is a great place to invest in property, with prices being more affordable than London and prices still seeing a steady increase year on year. There is a great mix and style of properties to accommodate all tastes, with some great family locations such as Poets Corner, Hanover, Hollingbury, West Dene and Preston Park area, with the central parts of Brighton being ideal for the younger singles, couples mainly being students and working professionals.
From an investment point of view, it is a great city for buy-to-let properties. With one of the highest rental figures in the whole of the UK, it makes a great place to look for a financial investment. Again, there are some key parts of the city which are incredibly popular, whether that be for singles, couple or families. If you are looking for student properties and house shares, again, purchasing one of these properties in the right location can certainly provide a good yield.
