According to bbc.co.uk this morning:

"Cheltenham, Bournemouth and Brighton have seen the highest percentage rise in house prices among UK towns and cities in 2017, according to research by the Halifax.

House prices in Cheltenham increased at nearly five times the average UK rate during 2017, at 13% compared with 2.7% nationally.

The seaside town of Bournemouth on the south coast experienced the second biggest rise, with an increase of 11.7%, while nearby Brighton saw prices rise 11.4% rise in the past year."

Something I don't understand is the huge premium on georgian townhouses converted into flats.  I know they look nice, but they have terrible sound insulation, plumbing that wasn't intended for several washing machines and are often expensive to heat.  Nevertheless they sell for significantly more than purpose-built flats. 

I have heard the build quality of many old houses in Brighton is terrible, the reason so many are painted is to hide all the flaws.
