Brighton market 'booming'

Brighton market 'booming'

The housing market in the city of Brighton and Hove has been doing well recently, it has been stated.

Local estate agent Andrea Harding told This is Money: "The sun came out early in March and the viewing levels shot up. My diary has gone mad."

She added that even though the market has been "dire" the level of housing demand is "way up on last year".

The news provider suggested that Brighton has a strong appeal because of its traditional features - such as the pavilion and pier - as well as its youthful profile and more attractive lifestyle compared to London.

Another area that could be doing well soon is Suffolk, an agent has suggested.

Bury St Edmunds-based David Bedford claimed that the appointment of Roy Keane as Ipswich Town Football Club's new manager could bolster the top end market in the county as he moves down from Cheshire to take up the job.

Mr Bedford told the East Anglian Daily Times that the Irishman could "do more for the property market than the chancellor Alastair Darling did in his Budget".
