From East Anglian cities and towns like Norwich and Ipswich to the less urban areas of Essex or Cambridgeshire, there’s a lot to discover when it comes to property in England’s East.
The East of England is made up of six areas: Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Properties in the area range vastly from ones mainly suiting single professionals to couple or families.
When looking to invest in property in this area it’s often wise to not only focus on the bigger cities and town but widen your net and also consider more rural villages. Occasionally, the country’s prettiest cottages, converted barns and farmhouses become available in England’s East.
For those who are considering Essex as their investment location, they should keep an extra eye out. The area has the region’s highest population, meaning that new property developments pop up frequently to cover the demand.
One of the many benefits of the area is the comparatively short commute to London. From big parts of England’s East you can get to London’s city centre in 45 minutes up to an hour.
For most, the East of England is equal to one of the world’s oldest and most renowned educational establishments, the University of Cambridge. And whilst the university has 31 colleges dotted around Cambridge, the oldest one founded in 1281, there are a variety of other universities around the area. One of them is the University of East Anglia, which has produced some of the country’s best writing talents.
All in all, finding the perfect investment in England’s East is an achievable adventure which requires some time and planning. You will, however, need deeper pockets than in some other parts of the country as the location so close to London will push up prices.
So if the slightly inflated prices don’t put you off and you’re still keen to invest, make sure you have a little wander outside the area’s big towns and cities and see if you can find a little hidden gem to make your own.
