  • Property Investment in Hove: A Seaside Gem with Solid Potential

Hove, nestled alongside its bustling neighbour Brighton, has transformed from a quaint seaside town into a thriving property investment destination. Its charming Victorian streets, proximity to the beach, and vibrant cultural scene have propelled it to the forefront of investor interest.

Why Hove?

Several factors contribute to Hove’s alluring investment proposition:

  • Strong rental market: Hove boasts a diverse tenant pool, fuelled by students, professionals, and retirees seeking a relaxed coastal lifestyle. This demand translates into high occupancy rates and reliable rental income for property investors.
  • Capital appreciation potential: Hove’s property market has consistently demonstrated resilience and growth. With limited land availability and increasing demand, property values are expected to rise steadily in the long term.
  • Regenerative projects: Hove is undergoing exciting regeneration projects, like the Kingsway and Hove Station developments, which enhance the area’s infrastructure and lifestyle amenities, further boosting property values.
  • Diverse property options: From elegant Regency terraces to modern seafront apartments, Hove caters to a range of investor preferences and budgets.

Investing in Hove: Considerations

While Hove presents promising opportunities, careful consideration is crucial before diving in:

  • Higher entry prices: Compared to inland areas, Hove’s property prices are generally steeper. Investors should factor in their budget and risk tolerance.
  • Tourist fluctuations: Short-term rentals can be lucrative during peak seasons, but occupancy might dip in quieter months. Investors should consider a balanced approach to cater to both long-term and short-term rentals.
  • Competition: Hove’s property market is competitive, and securing the right deal might require patience and a proactive approach.

Hove’s Investment Hotspots

Certain areas within Hove stand out for their investment potential:

  • The seafront: Hove’s beachfront boasts stunning apartments and penthouses with breathtaking views, attracting premium rents and capital growth.
  • Central Hove: Bustling with cafes, shops, and cultural attractions, central Hove offers a dynamic mix of property types, appealing to a broad tenant base.

Investing in Hove can be a rewarding venture, offering a combination of steady rental income, potential capital appreciation, and the allure of a beautiful seaside location. By carefully considering the market dynamics, property type, and location, investors can unlock the exciting potential of Hove’s property market.

Harringtons have been incredibly helpful and supportive of us as new renters and they have been super efficient in getting all of the documents sent through and signed in such a short period of time. Thank you!

we chose this letting agents as they chose a good bills company that is much cheaper than other agents. When viewing houses the staff were very friendly and have been very helpful in answering our questions and making the process as easy as possible.

Although I have only been renting with Harringtons for a short period of time, I have had nothing but a positive experience. From viewing to admin updates. The admin team especially are very polite and quick to respond and I have no doubt that the rest of my tenancy will run smoothly. I would recommend to anyone considering renting in brighton.

Professional communication with tenant although entirely impersonal. There was a bigger disconnect in their communication with the landlord in most cases, which seemed to be either slow or non-existent (discovered after contacting the landlord directly).Property was full of spider webs on day 1 despite apparently being professionally cleaned. Took a day off of work to clean it on move out day, leaving it cleaner than when it received but still had to pay part of the deposit for professional cleaning.It has been a while since I have rented, but I'll avoid letting agencies completely now if this is anything close to the average renting experience.

I have rented with Harringtons Lettings before and have always found the agents to be quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. I loved their service so much I have chosen to rent with Harringtons again. Faultless 😊
