So, why do properties with a sea view cost more?
East Sussex was noted as being one of the best areas in the UK to sell a property and it’s obvious why. Going to the seaside has been a traditional family holiday in the UK for centuries, with Brighton being one of the most popular tourist locations in the UK.
If you are selling a home along the coast, then you can be looking at making 29% more on your property sale than those further inland. A study carried out by the online estate agent, Tepilo, found that the average asking price for a home along the coast with a sea view is an impressive £304,702 which is approximately £70,000 more than the average asking price for a property inland.
Why do we love to be beside the seaside?
It dates back to the Victorian era when beach huts and promenades were introduced to the public and the UK seaside tourism began to boom. It’s even been proven that living by the sea is a natural mood enhancer with some speculating that people’s moods increase when shown a blue environment instead of an urban setting.
