Kent is a county in South East England and one of the home counties. It borders Greater London to the north west, Surrey to the west and East Sussex to the south west. Kent is famous for the Canterbury Cathedral which is seat to the Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of the Church of England.
Large parts of Kent are within the London commuter belt and its strong transport connections to the capital makes Kent a high-income county. Just over a quarter of the county forms part of two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty: The North Downs and The High Weald.
Kent has experienced growth in average property prices in the past couple of years, much higher than its neighbouring counties. Relative affordability and accessibility to London are two main factors driving strong performance across Kent’s property market. As an estate agent you will see that there is a high demand for buyers looking to move out of London to a more affordable area where they will also get more for their money. You will be dealing with new builds alongside character properties and flats.
