Off to the Market
Market towns are known for their historic charm, specialist independent shops, a central square - often hosting classic markets - and excellent infrastructure of doctors’ surgeries, schools and transport connections. So it’s easy to see why homebuyers are willing to pay on average nearly £25,000 more to live in one!
Essex is well known for its historic market towns, so we thought we’d take a look at some properties on the market, near the market…
