Folkestone is one of Britain’s new hotspots

The article below may contain outdated information.

Folkestone is named by the Sunday Times as one of the best ‘up-and-coming’ areas to live and invest in for 2022.  Tom Palmer’s article in the Sunday Times Home section (19th June) mentions Folkestone as benefiting from regeneration of the Creative Quarter with its interesting shops and galleries, and the Harbour Arm with its lively bars and places to eat.  Highlighted are good restaurants, the beach front, colourful beach huts along the seafront and the lovely Lower Leas Coastal Park.  The feature also mentions the High-Speed rail link, which is rapid (less than an hour to London St Pancras) and the house prices being relatively forgiving.

Thinking of Buying or Selling a coastal property?

The thought of moving in the sunshine generally makes it more appealing for buyers and sellers in the summer.  There is also an increased demand from buyers looking to move to the coast. It’s an ideal time to sell when properties should be looking at their best.  If you have the benefit of a garden, and sea views, it is good time to show it off as it’s likely to be a major factor in ensuring you receive a high level of interest in your property.
