The Home Counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Surrey, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire are the counties that surround the capital London. Many towns and villages within the Home Counties form part of the London commuter belt from which it is practical to commute to work in the capital.
The Home Counties as a whole are significantly more prosperous than other parts of the UK. The towns of Beaconsfield, Amersham, Gerrards Cross, all in Buckinghamshire, are considered the three most expensive towns in the country.
You might be asking yourself why you would choose to conduct a Home Counties property search, it is a ‘lifestyle’ choice, a financial decision and commitment. This is driven by where your place of work is, the cost involved in getting to your place of work and often where you choose to educate your offspring.
