East Anglia new homes round-up - the latest new build homes in the region

Posted 16 May 2017 by Rebecca Burns

In our latest round-up of the best new build homes in East Anglia we feature homes for a variety of buyers in Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire...

UK house prices have seen the first quarterly decline in more than four years, according to the latest Halifax house price index, with values dropping 0.2% over the last three months. This takes the average property value to £219,649 – although buyers in more expensive regions such as East Anglia may still struggle to find a family home with that kind of price tag.

This week's regional round-up looks at a selection of new developments across East Anglia, including some in Cambridgeshire, Essex and Norfolk. Many have the Help to Buy purchase assistance scheme available for buyers with a limited budget, while others are aimed towards the luxury end of the market with large, luxurious executive properties.
