How to live the London life without the price tag? Move to Kent's Medway towns

For a long time, Britain’s Medway towns, for those that had never visited them, were dismissed as unsavory places to live due to their low house prices – but over the course of the last five years, this has changed with house prices doubling in cost!

Even with this increase, the prices still pale in comparison to those within 25 miles of Medway and leave potential buyers weary of the location. But with a market that’s rising, homes in such Medway towns are proving to be a beneficial purchase!

Key Takeaways:

  • People often assume incorrectly that areas with lower priced housing must have high crime and unemployment.
  • Housing in and around London is 53% more expensive on average than housing in several Kentish waterside communities.
  • Improved infrastructure and over one billion pounds of investment have made the Kentish region a more desirable place to live.
