Great new for the local property market, as Derbyshire homes have shown to be growing at a faster annual rate compared with most of the country.
Derbyshire property growth is now the 2nd best in the country, with the top three hottest markets of last year being Northamptonshire (+9.1%), Derbyshire (+7.9%) and Norfolk (+7.4%).
“The top three price hot-spots in the country, leading the mini-boom across the middle of England, are the counties of Norfolk, Derbyshire and Northamptonshire. Norfolk in third place has a popular holiday and retirement homes market which is perhaps providing better value for those still active in this sector than parts of the south coast, plus its county town is the fast-growing Norwich. Derbyshire in second position does well in the affordability stakes, being the cheapest of the top three and third cheapest out of the top eight with average prices around £200,000.
