Why should you buy your next home in Brighton?

17th January 2015 by

With its eclectic mix of independent shops and lively seaside attractions, Brighton offers a vibrant and diverse living space for families, couples and individuals. This ‘city by the sea’ is the residence of choice for many and with 41% of its population aged between 20 and 44 years old, it is far from a seaside town purely for the older generation.

As a house sales solicitor in Brighton, we provide a range of expert services for those wishing to set up home in this beautiful part of East Sussex. We assist with purchases, sale of property, remortgages, transfer of equity and can assist in conveyancing for first-time buyer initiatives to ensure each of our clients can access the property of their dreams.

An area made for every demographic

Whether you are a young creative, a student, a business owner or a worker who commutes to London each day, there will be something for you in Brighton.

However, the area is by no means a ‘one size fits all’ place to buy. Woodingdean, an eastern suburb of Brighton and Hove, provides a family-friendly setting just minutes away from the city’s iconic marina. This area in particular delivers a selection of three to four bedroom homes in close proximity to the area’s best primary and secondary schools.

If you consider yourself a young professional, Kemptown is the place to be. With a variety of attractive starter homes on offer – the majority of which are in the Regency style that the city is known and loved for – home buyers in Kemptown can enjoy a lively atmosphere, excellent transport links and a thriving community.

Relax, work and play

The diverse number of facilities accessible in Brighton and Hove means there is simply no need to travel too far to relax, work or play. Thanks to its blend of history, culture and entertainment, when you buy a property in Brighton will have a long ‘to do’ list of leisure activities. From taking in the scenery at one of the top 10 beaches in the world and enjoying a range of boutique shops and bars to seeing the latest shows at Brighton Theatre Royal, your weekend and days off are sure to be busy.

Property investment in Brighton

In addition to representing clients wishing to purchase a residential property in Brighton, our house sales solicitors also play an instrumental role in property investment. Landlords searching for buy-to-let opportunities needn’t look further than this buoyant city, and with a number of core demographics, including a large student community, to target the rental potential across multiple areas is excellent.

Rental properties are in demand throughout Brighton meaning investing landlords can take advantage of potentially very good returns, whether they provide accommodation for students, young professionals, families or retirees.
