I'm another Manchester bod who wants to come and live in Folkestone. Whilst I get myself sorted, I'm thinking of buy-to-letting, but I'm unsure whether there is any demand for rental property in Folkestone yet. Lettings agents won't really give you an honest answer.
I'm hoping to buy and either move down or let until 2009 when properties should have increased in value.
Any gen or local knowledge much appreciated!!
This is my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of excitement when I first moved here sometime in '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those 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 Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from the name of a fake 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 GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
