Property Investment in England: Focus South East


Think England’s South East is all about seaside towns? Well, think again as the country’s southern regions have a lot more on offer than you might initially think.

England’s South east is made up of nine areas, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex. It’s an incredibly diverse region with a range of properties available.

When it comes to house prices, property in the South East is the most expensive in the UK, outside of London. Across the counties themselves, however, prices differ significantly.

Of course, the South East offers the one thing most property hunters may think of: beautiful coastal properties with a view to die for. But once you move further inland, you can come across some amazing bargains, including houses, flats, maisonettes, mansions, cottages or bungalows.

House prices in the South make some investors shy away these days and have a closer look at the North. And with lower costs, mostly higher yields and the Northern Powerhouse initiative pushing for change up north, a lot of the time this shift is fair enough.

The one thing, however, that shouldn’t be forgotten about is the area’s proximity to London. Some of the region’s urban locations can easily classified as “commuter gold” for those travelling in and out of London every day, with one way travel times of less than 60 minutes straight into the capital.

And if none of this has convinced you yet, then there’s still the area’s fine wining and dining to fall head over heels for. With London’s offering being so close and therefore ever-present, pubs, restaurants and bars in the South East have to work hard to make people choose a local spot over the big smoke.

And they do it well.
