East Midlands is Flying
The East Midlands is tipped to see the largest house price growth over the next 5 years behind London, the East and South East according to Barclays UK.
We think South Derbyshire will lead the way!
If you think the property market is faltering, think again. Barclays UK Property Indicator has predicted that houses prices across the UK are tipped to rise by an average of 6.1% over the next five years. Barclays claim buy-to-let investors will play a large role in the rise between now and 2021, particularly young investors who have heard the pension plan horror stories and are taking matters in to their own hands by building a property portfolio which will provide their retirement fund instead. Behind London, the East and South East, the East Midlands is tipped to see the largest house price growth over the next 5 years. We think South Derbyshire could lead the way and exceed the rest of the region. With large employers such as East Midlands Airport, DHL, M&S, Toyota and Rolls Royce all in the local area, good road links (A50, A52, A38, A42, and the M1) all close by and easy access to Derby, Nottingham and Leicester… South Derbyshire’s property market is in a strong position and will always be sought after. Also with the proposed £56bn HS2 project coming to the area and creating a transport gateway to the East Midlands, we think investors who plan ahead and purchase properties early to benefit from the increase in capital growth will play a key role in the region’s overall success.
