Peterborough in the seat of Cambridgeshire has an abundance of: new homes, flats, detached and semi-detached properties. With a rising population thought to exceed 190,000 by 2020 the range of properties available meets the need of an expanding population. The market for semi-detached properties is particularly buoyant and the Hampton Vale area of Peterborough with the nearby Hampton Lake is becoming a much sought after place of residence.
On the rental side of the Peterborough property market there is a marked contrast with only small numbers of rental properties available across the whole spectrum of properties from detached homes through to flats. Market Deeping is a market town in Peterborough with picturesque views linking it to the past and super fast broadband installed in 10,000 homes linking it to the future. While some in Peterborough prefer the more cosmopolitan areas like Hampton there are those who are more attracted to the slower pace of life in the villages like Ailsworth or Orton Waterville.
