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

Posted 31 July 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...

A complex mix of house price growth, inflation and wage increases – which varies dramatically throughout the UK – means buyers are currently experiencing widely different buying conditions depending on where they are looking, according to many experts.

While housing market data from the ONS and Land Registry shows an overall gradual slowdown of house price growth, the latest regional data is showing the strongest performance in East Anglia.

With house prices in the region remaining buoyant, many prospective buyers may be worried they will be unable to secure the home they want. Purchase assistance packages such as the government-backed Help to Buy scheme could, however, offer a much-needed helping hand.

This latest selection of brand new housing developments across East Anglia includes inspiration in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire, including many options where purchase assistance schemes are available.
