South East new homes round-up - the latest new homes for sale

Posted 11 October 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 is amongst a handful of UK regions that has typically been less affordable than many other areas when it comes to house prices, but that is currently showing signs of weaker activity in this area.

Despite this slowdown, the region still suffers from a serious shortage of housing, with only one fifth of households being able to afford to buy the average new home in the region, according to recent reports.

Purchase assistance schemes at brand new developments could help struggling buyers in the South East to secure their dream home, whether they are first-time buyers or homeowners looking to upsize. Alongside the government's Help to Buy schemes, many house builders also offer their own incentives, including part exchange schemes for existing owners looking to sell their current house.

Here's our latest round-up of new developments across the South East.

Oakhurst Place in Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex (Barratt Homes)

Oakhurst PlaceThis new development of three-bedroom homes in North Bexhill is located next to beautiful open countryside, set within a popular seaside town, and not far south of the delightful market town of Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Bexhill, the birthplace of British motor racing, is a traditional British seaside resort, offering a great place for buyers who want to relax at home by the coast. There are miles of uncrowded beaches all around, and the town itself has two miles of promenade running behind a long, gently shelving shingle beach with some fine stretches of sand down on the foreshore.

Prices: From £264,995
