Sudbury has been named a property hotspot of 2017 by the property portal Rightmove.

Displaying the highest annual asking price growth in the whole country, Sudbury is proving popular for homebuyers. With an average asking price of £265,291 – 13.1% higher than this time last year – Sudbury’s stock is definitely booming.

Sudbury’s appeal is being attributed to its vibrant town centre, rail links and proximity to Stansted Airport. With good access to the cities of Cambridge and London, Sudbury represents the idyllic market town set in the picturesque countryside that is desirable for buyers looking to escape the city.

Miles Shipside, director of Rightmove, said: “Although prices have grown at a muted rate of 1.2% nationally this year, there are a number of local markets where strong demand and short supply has led to pretty heady price rises, especially in areas where homes are relatively more affordable than some of their nearby cities.”
