It looks like now would be a great time to appoint a Property Search Agent to help you move to Brighton, according to Rightmove’s latest monthly report, which is featured on This is Money.

Brighton was tipped as one of the three hottest future house price locations for the next five years by property website Rightmove, as it said prices are now rising faster in the South East than London.

A ripple effect is occurring as cash-rich Londoners move out of the capital and buyers seek better value for their money and more affordable properties, its latest monthly report said.
Miles Shipside, of Rightmove said: ‘The South East has kick-started its journey on the five-year road to the highest growth in values by overtaking London in this month’s index. Those looking for the best price appreciation in the country should seriously consider the South East, and some may wish to fine-tune their search to the top three locations of Southampton, Brighton and Luton.’

Mr Shipside said: ‘The ripple effect of buyers priced out of London combined with those cashing in and moving out of the capital means that the South East has taken London’s boom-town crown. Upwards price pressure is being further fuelled by a reluctance of home owners in the hotspots of the South East to come to market.
