Southsea: The perfect settlement for graduates and young professionals

Southsea: The perfect settlement for graduates and young professionals

When graduating from university and moving into your first job, choosing somewhere to live can be a daunting task. While you might want to head to a city where there are a higher number of positions, you will often be hampered by the fact that you cannot afford the cost of purchasing or renting in these areas.

For this reason, you might want to think about looking towards a place that is more on the outskirts of one of the city's major settlements, offering you more affordable pricing, but also an abundance of favourable amenities and good links to the city. This sort of solution can be found when you are looking for property for sale in Southsea.

The coastal resort is technically a part of the city of Portsmouth in Hampshire, but exists as a separate entity. Its basing just a mile from the city centre of the larger settlement is very much preferable for young professionals looking to commute into Portsmouth each day though, with a simple drive or even a walk into the office not being out of the question.

However, the town you will choose to live in will also have to have its own attractions, as you will not always want to be headed into the city whenever you want to do something. The settlement will not disappoint on this front, with the area having two large department stores and a range of other high street retailers. This means you can shop in the relatively quiet area away from the main hub while enjoying your weekend.

For those who have endured a hard week in the office and want the chance to relax on the weekend, they will also have the chance to experience restaurants, bars and even clubs in Southsea, which make it a great place for the younger professional to be based.

And if moving to this area, don't miss out on the chance to feel like a part of the community. The town has a recreation ground, Southsea Common, where you can enjoy local events such as Southsea Show, Para Spectacular, Military Vehicle Show, Kite Festival and even some high flying circus extravaganzas.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801544352-ADNFCR
