Fleet Pond, Hampshire

Hart remains the most desirable place to live in the UK

Our local area of Hart district has been selected as the top place to live in the UK for the fifth year in a row.

According to the annual Halifax survey, Fleet and its surrounding towns and villages scored highly on a range of factors including life expectancy, employment and crime rates – even hours of sunshine when compared to other places across the UK.  More than 97% of our residents say they are in good health and the average weekly wage is £839 – one third more than the UK average of £629.  Employment rates are also high, with 80% of 16 to 64 year olds in work.  Life expectancy is the joint highest in the UK, with men typically living to the age of 82 and women living to 86.

Winchester in Hampshire also appeared in the top five places to live, alongside Elmbridge in Surrey, Rutland in the East Midlands and Chiltern in Buckinghamshire.  The survey analyses data from a variety of sources including the Office for National Statistics and the Met Office.

The continuing appeal of Hart continues to generate high demand for property in the Fleet area, so your home may be worth more than you thought.  If you are thinking of selling your property then we would be delighted to help.  With all the knowledge of a local high street agent, but at the cost of an online agent we can sell your property from as little as £499 or 0.5%+VAT, saving you thousands.  Please give us a call on 01252 819725 or contact us and we can give you a free, no obligation valuation of your home.
