When considering buying your first property in Brighton, it may seem like you have a mountain to climb to get your foot on the ladder. The city is one of the most diverse, vibrant and appealing in the country – and therefore, property is in high demand.
However, at Southern Home Ownership, we are here to give you a helping hand. With many properties for sale, Brighton offers excellent opportunities for would-be buyers, and we are here to make your property search easier. We can also advise you on government schemes that may bring many Brighton properties within your reach.
Shared ownership – or part-buy, part-rent – is a government initiative that allows you to buy a share of a property, based on what you can afford. That share usually ranges between 25 and 75%.
Brighton is a bustling seaside city on England’s south coast. It is one of the country’s most colourful and creative places, and therefore attracts many start-up businesses and organisations operating in the creative industries.
This seaside resort is equally popular as a holiday destination, and there is, therefore, no shortage of things to do. The infamous stony Brighton beach is synonymous with the city, as is its beautiful traditional pier.
As for things to see, there are many famous and unique landmarks in Brighton – popular hangouts for both locals and visitors alike. Take the Royal Pavilion, for example: this striking Grade 2 listed exotic palace is a former royal residence that was built more than 200 years ago for King George IV. It now hosts a range of events, as well as being open for visitors all year around.
Shopping in Brighton is another popular pastime. As well as all the regular high street stores, the city features an eclectic mixture of bohemian boutiques down winding cobbled streets.
For those looking for properties for sale in Brighton, there are excellent transport links in this popular commuter town for those working in London. The closest seaside town to the capital, Brighton is served by a direct train that takes less than one-and-a-half hours to get to London. It also boasts an excellent network of buses and trains to other local towns and villages, making it exceptionally easy to get to, from and around.
Although the city centre can be quite busy for cars, it is fairly accessible for those that drive, offering many affordable car parks and easy links to other nearby areas.
