House prices across the UK have continued to rise over the past year – and for one Kent town, the property market is thriving.
While the average price of a home in the South East went up by around 8.9% in April compared with the same time the previous year, some research suggests average selling prices in the highly sought-after seaside town of Whitstable jumped by more than 22% during the same period*.
The number of homes changing hands has also significantly increased, says leading Kent law firm Furley Page, which has further strengthened its residential property team in the town to meet local demand.
“Whitstable has always been popular for property hunters but, in the past few months, we’ve noticed a marked increase in the number of homes being bought and sold,” says Furley Page Partner Myfanwy McDonagh, who heads the firm’s residential property teams.
With Whitstable property sales and purchases rapidly increasing, Furley Page Chartered Legal Executive Deborah Trott has now joined the residential property team’s Whitstable office from Chatham.
Deborah, who has been helping clients buy and sell homes for 10 years, specialises in the sale and purchase of freehold and leasehold property, as well as new-build sales and purchases, and assisting clients with remortgages.
Furley Page’s residential property team has been successfully buying and selling homes for clients across Kent and the South East for decades.
Furley Page has three Kent offices, in Whitstable, Canterbury and Chatham, and was the first firm in these areas to be accredited as a member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme, a nationwide scheme which recognises excellence in the home buying process. The firm is also recommended by Chambers UK and The Legal 500.
As well as helping with residential house and flat sales and purchases, Furley Page’s extensive team of experts can also assist with auction sales and purchases, holiday and buy-to-let purchases, residential leases, shared ownership, mortgages and equity release.
