West Midlands New Homes Round-Up

Posted 7 October 2019 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team looks at new build homes across the West Midlands region which suit a spectrum of requirements and budgets...

House prices have risen in the West Midlands and every other region but two over the last month, according to a recent analysis. And while annual growth across the UK has slowed to 1%, in the West Midlands this figure is a stronger 1.8%.

The news comes from the HomeOwners Alliance House Price Watch, which analyses data from the many different house price indices out there to provide an easier-to-digest overview for prospective buyers.

This encouraging news about the West Midlands housing market, combined with the region’s reported growth in employment rates, will give prospective buyers plenty to feel optimistic about.

Our latest selection of brand new developments in the West Midlands offers a glimpse into some of the possibilities for house hunters searching for a new home there.
