Rightmove’s property hotspots on the seaside for remote home-hunters. 

Rightmove recently reported on the seaside locations that are driving the most attention from home-hunters. With the advent of the pandemic, many people who once had a regular commute to their office are finding their horizons for homehunting broadening, as they are no longer restricted by their commutes.

Given this, and the slowly approaching summer sunshing, Rightmove have broken down each of the four seaside property hotspots into their cost and polularity.

West Wittering, West Sussex

Average Asking Price: £731,718

Rightmove says “West Wittering is one of the prettiest seaside villages on the south coast of England. Its award-winning sandy beach lined with beach huts is also pretty gorgeous, and on a clear day you can see over to the Isle of Wight.”
