How many? 2016’s New Build Sales by Region Revealed

We recently commissioned detailed research into the number of new build sales completed last year.

The research also features the number of sites which have unimplemented planning consents.

It makes for very interesting reading and highlights the amount of opportunities the sector provides proactive agents.

Now everyone in the property industry knows the UK needs more new homes desperately.

Simply nowhere near enough are being built to satisfy an ever increasing demand.

The housing shortage has been described as one of the Government’s top priorities.

But our research shows there were still 86155 new build sales last year in England and Wales – and for any forward thinking agency there are opportunities aplenty to win sales and lettings instructions.

At the Land & New Homes Network we track the entire national new build market place every month – we break the sales figures down to a regional level complete with the type of property sold.

We live in an information age and at the network we realise the importance of monitoring markets and sourcing opportunities for our members.

We have access to information and know every property and vendor in the market regardless of which agent they are using.

This access to information and how to use it to sharpen your competitive edge is something our members are using to huge effect on a regular basis.

Whether it’s terraced homes on Teeside or semis in the south west we have the figures at our fingertips.

For the full breakdown of new build sales across England and Wales in 2016 send us an email at hello@lnhnetwork.co.uk

Land & New Homes Network have helped me and my business take it to another level over the last year. The support from the whole team has been greatly appreciated with Kevin & Ian always on hand. I would recommend other forward-thinking agents to consider the network as a large part of their business. It’s not gift-wrapped for you, but the support, collateral, and connections give you an opportunity to make it a real success.
