That sounds a bit quicker than I'd heard before, but so says propertyinvesting.net... it also adds:
Folkestone is a nice town generally no really bad areas. Down by the harbour it's got "further to go" than other parts of the town. Much of Folkestone is large elegant Victoriana three story terraces many in leafy avenues. Any property with sea-views will command a premium in future years... Close to the town centre is a plus if you rent your property. There is no University*, but there is a town centre International Language College that needs student accommodation. Price are rising fast from last October, so get in quick before it's too late!
What a nice report!
*and surely there will be a uni of some description soon enough!
This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
