East Anglia New Homes Round-up - The Latest New Build Homes in the Region

Posted 8 October 2018 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...

The residential property market in the UK is experiencing diverse regional variations, with parts of East Anglia at the more sluggish end of the spectrum, according to the August 2018 survey by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Experts say activity has been losing momentum because of a lack of housing stock combined with a level of uncertainty over both the interest rate outlook and Brexit.

For house hunters in East Anglia, despite the shortage of stock in many areas, there are some interesting brand new housing developments springing up. We've scoured the region to find a wide range of sites offering homes to appeal to buyers on varying budgets.
