Folkestone property BOOM!

Folkestone property BOOM! has it that a flat near me (Folkestone West End) just sold for 205,000! That's quite a lot of cash for a flat around here isn't it? It's one of the new ones on Earls Avenue, just how big are they then? I think this must have broken the ceiling price for this road.

One of my neighbours went in for a look and thought they were a bit small, they looked very nice but not huge in the online brochure... this is sure evidence of the Folkestone property boom.

This is part of my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today 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 get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
