South East New Homes Round-up - The Latest New Homes For Sale

Posted 28 November 2017 by Rebecca Burns

The WhatHouse? team selects the latest new build homes for sale in counties across the South East of England...

The South East's housing market has stalled, according to media reports - with some estate agents saying they have registered far fewer buyers this autumn compared with last year – and especially those who are keen to move before Christmas.

Of those who are still eager to get their foot on the property ladder, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) says a larger proportion is now focusing on the section of the housing market supported by the Government-backed Help to Buy initiative.

With this in mind, many of the options covered below in our latest round-up of new developments in the South East offer Help to Buy options. Purchase assistance schemes such as this can help buyers who are struggling to save up a large enough deposit for their ideal home.

The apartments promise stylish interiors with modern, fully-fitted kitchens, Smeg appliances and en-suite bathrooms.

A pub, a hotel, a primary school and shops are all planned within walking distance of the development, which will also eventually have primary and secondary schools and a dedicated medical centre.
