The coastal town of Lowestoft is the countries most easterly point, facing out into the North Sea. Sandy beaches and plentiful tourist attractions make this a fun place to live. It also receives slightly less rain than the rest of the country, making that beachside lifestyle more appealing.
There's a population of around 65,000 people, with a slightly older population. However there are still a good number of families in the area, and schools here are doing well.
Most of the work in the area comes from the tourism industry, or factory work but redevelopment and renewable energy developments are increasing the economy in the area, and making it a better place to live.
The town has its own newspaper and radio station, museum and cinema, giving it a great community feel, and evidence of the fishing heritage of the area is visible all over the coast.
It is predominantly a buyers market, with relatively limited rentals available. However rentals tend to be at very decent prices with one bed flats available from £300 a month. Of course seafront properties are pricier than the average, as are homes within the historic city centre. However this is an area on the rise, and now is a great time to make an investment.
