East Midlands New Homes Round-up - The Best of The Region

Posted 19 December 2017 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team picks its selection of the very best new build homes for sale across the East Midlands region...

The cost of buying or renting a home in the UK rose fastest in the East Midlands in the past 12 months, according to official figures.

House prices in the region, which incorporates Derby, Nottingham and Leicester, rose by 7.5% in the year to the end of July 2017 – compared with a 5.1% average across the UK, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

This trend is in part a consequence of low supply to buyer demand, experts say, alongside better affordability than is found in many other UK regions.

Our latest round-up of brand new housing developments in the East Midlands includes options in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire, with homes suitable for first-time buyers and others that would be perfect for larger families.
