"Estate agents in London say while the town has some of the cheapest accommodation in the South East – the average price per house is £176,000 – it is rapidly increasing in value.
Its seaside location is attractive to people looking to relocate to larger homes – and those wanting weekend second properties which can also be rented out to holidaymakers.
In the travel business predictions are for an increase in visitors as more people are attracted to a traditional British holiday."
The travel agent waxes lyrical about Margate's many attractions:
"Margate’s beach is one of the most beautiful in the South East and will soon be within easy reach of London."
“Even now travel times are not too bad", he says, "Then there is the Turner Centre."
“Once in operation it will attract many visitors and they will want to see the landscapes that influenced one of Britain’s most famous artists.”
Quite obviously Ramsgate is now either overpriced or not up to the job of being the new Monaco of the South-east and Margate will now be invaded by BBC and Channel 4 property programmers with an eye for a smart and upcoming seaside town.
Either that or.. well I'll leave the comments to you!
