New Homes In Somerset For £200,000 Budget

Posted 9 November 2020 by Keith Osborne

Buyers on a £200,000 budget can find an excellent array of new homes to consider across Somerset...

Somerset is a county that offers a lot to homebuyers with its range of rural and urban settings, tradition and re-generation, and some excellent transport links. For house-hunters on a limited budget, it also offers a great range of brand new homes to consider right now.

It’s a great time to act to secure a new home whether you are a first-time buyer or moving from a current home, as right now there’s a Stamp Duty holiday, the availability of Help to Buy, and for some homes, there's a chance to part buy-part rent. Between them, these things can save money and require a smaller deposit and mortgage.

£200,000 is considerably less the national and county average property prices but there are some excellent new build homes available.
