Like many of the Medway towns Rochester has been a key military area due to it proximity to the River Thames. The central part of town has also been an important part of Rochester as it houses the Guildhall, castle and cathedral.
The area has become an increasingly attractive property investor area due to its great education establishments, sporting clubs, transport links on the A2 and M2 plus the railway. The property prices for commercial and residential property investment is slightly higher in this area compared to other Medway areas, but this reflects the area. The high street offers great convenience for all and the buildings reflect its medieval history. You can find property with the middle-age character around the castle or a newly build flat block right by the station.
This area is ideal for property investors as funds are being spend on the area by the council and other property investors looking to create rooms to let with a high yielding return. There is a strong demand for rooms to let in the area with the top rooms being rented at over £600 pcm. Like many Medway areas this is a place to invest now.
