The South East showed the first signs of economic growth in the UK after the years of recession worldwide. Those signs manifested themselves in the demand for housing, within Central London initially, and everywhere within possible commuting distance immediately afterwards. The transport network in the South East is such that people can travel into London from the South Coast, the M4 corridor, East Anglia and towns well to the North.
The South East
The South Coast is obviously a good choice because the seaside provides such a good contrast to the city centre. The South East is the economic hub of the UK, and as such there is a business infrastructure to provide everything consumers need. Job security has improved markedly in the last couple of years. Even the South East experienced problems, but now with the return of consumer confidence comes increased spending. Some people might think about changing their car but others have been looking to renovate their properties.
Eastbourne grew into a popular tourist resort many years ago. It was originally a series of hamlets that the then Duke of Devonshire decided to transform by using a talented architect to design a street plan and the buildings to line those streets. It has a Victorian feel to it and the environment that has been created compares favourably with any seaside town.
It has a significant tourist income from day trippers, people coming for a longer holiday, and also as a provider of conference facilities. In recent times, the average age of the population has fallen due to people selecting Eastbourne for study and also as the commuting town of their dreams.
Few seaside towns are growing as quickly and that has an obvious impact on the demand for housing, old and new. There are plans for new builds, luxury marina homes have been built in recent years, and there are also old houses in need of renovation. The sea air is wonderful but it does nothing for the buildings. Wood deteriorates and needs regular maintenance. That is where the idea of renovation makes sense.
One popular construction material which can withstand the sea air is UPVC, and if you have a home in need of renovation in Eastbourne UPVC Windows Eastbourne is one of the companies that you can talk to. Modern day suppliers can produce tailor made doors and windows that will need little maintenance. UPVC is extremely durable, and what’s more, at the end of its useful life it can actually be recycled.
The environment receives a good deal of column inches in today’s press and most companies are keen to make their contribution towards protecting it. That involves energy saving and recycling whenever possible. Your home is your greatest asset. If it is well maintained and energy efficient it will be a good investment that in the future you may want to sell. That will be easier if your home appeals to potential buyers due to its energy efficiency.
