The city of Plymouthin Devon has long been a desirable place to live, and with the recent multi million pound development and rejuvenation of the harbour area it is once more back in the news and caused a surge of interest in houses for sale in Plymouth. If you believed all the stories in the media, you would be forgiven for thinking that nobody could get a mortgage these days, but the sold signs around the area you live in prove otherwise.
Whether these are private buyers or those who are buying to let is unclear, but according to numerous surveys, mortgages for the latter are very much in the ascendency. Plymouth has always demanded top prices for its properties, thanks to its prime location on the South East coastand benefitting from some of the best weather in the country and being in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The waterfront city with a population of around 250,000 has been voted the best place to live in the UK, and while once thought of as a student city, it is attracting an ever increasing number of professionals. The thriving, cosmopolitan community coupled with the enviable coastal location is a real draw for water sport enthusiasts and families alike.
Whether you already live close to Plymouth, or are looking to relocate from another area of the UK, the best place to get an idea of the current homes available in Plymouth is to head online. There are many property websites that will give you all the information you need about moving here. You may, of course, not be looking to buy, and could be looking at flats to rent in Plymouth.
