When it comes to finding your ideal place to live, there is always a lot to be said for seeing what people say in general.
If you don’t know an individual, you should be wary of taking their advice and opinion. However, when you have a lot of people saying the same thing, you can take more comfort from the general overview of the area.
Recently, a poll was carried out by the Muddy Stilettos website, asking people what their favourite place in Suffolk was. When you have people who know the local area well, you can take more comfort and confidence in their opinion.
Okay, we are slightly biased and would have placed Bury St Edmunds at the number one spot, but it is great to see so many people speak favourably of the local area. One respondent said Bury St Edmunds was “the jewel in the crown of Suffolk”, and that’s a comment that sticks in the mind.
Some of the reasons cited for enjoying life in Bury St Edmunds were:
When considering a local area with respect to the property market, it is easy to focus schools, transport and crime reports. These are all crucial things to take on board, but there is more to life than this. It is easy to see why people consider the impact of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars when looking for their ideal place to live.
We think the range of independent shops and great places to eat and drink make Bury St Edmunds a brilliant place, and buyers agree.
We work closely with vendors in the town, but we also know what buyers are looking for.
