North West New Homes Round-up

Posted 30 December 2019 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team picks its current favourites from the selection of new homes for sale in the North West of England...

House prices in the North West of England could grow six times faster than in London over the next five years, according to Savills estate agents – representing the strongest price growth of all the regions.

The agent has released its five-year price forecast with various caveats, but the overall view is that the North West will see growth at 24% between 2020 and 2024, thanks to the strength and diversity of its economy, and the capacity for higher loan to income borrowing.

With signs that the region could offer healthy investment potential for prospective buyers, we’ve put together a brand new selection of the latest developments across the North West – ideal for anyone planning to launch or continue their house search during the festive downtime!
