With reports that a shortage of housing stock is pushing up prices in the South West, many buyers in the region may worry that they will struggle to find and secure their dream home.

Demand from potential buyers remains high – but the lack of new properties coming onto the market is reducing choice and causing house prices to rise, according to the August 2017 RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) UK Residential Market Survey, released in mid-September.

Our latest round-up of brand new housing developments across the South West offers a starting point for prospective buyers in the region who are keen to hear about the latest releases – with options to suit first-time buyers, downsizers and upsizers.
