I was watching this video earlier and at the end Phil mentioned the disparity in house prices between London and Northamptonshire for example.
I decided to do a quick search and was actually amazed at the quality of houses you could get for much less than you would pay if you were looking around the South East.
This is a note to self to not rule out places like Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes a little further up north which could give you a lot more house for your money.
This was one of my personal favourites
A 4 bed, 2 bath, detached house with a garage for £365,000. You would struggle to find something like this in the sub £400K price bracket in the South East.
