A key Devon city, Exeter has a population of around 120,000 and has a thriving economy and university, so would be a perfect place for property developers and landlords to consider as they extend their portfolio.
Sitting at the end of the M5, Exeter profits from a speedy link with Bristol and is also a hub for most traffic travelling through to Torquay, Plymouth and Newquay.
It is a prime business spot, one of the top ten most profitable places for business, but that is not really reflected in the prices of their properties which, as with many towns and cities in the south-west, tend to be on the affordable side.
Three and four bedroom houses can be bought for well under £200,000, making Exeter an extremely desirable city for people in the rental business as they can buy property cheaply and rent it out to students who attend the city's university and businesspeople looking to make that profit.
The high street is very well equipped for those who enjoy shopping for the big brands and it has a number of theatres, museums and galleries to entertain locals and visitors alike.
