Why Nottingham Remains a Property Hot Spot

Nottingham. Famous for its connection to the legend of Robin Hood and historical links to the lace and bicycle industry, Nottingham is big enough that you still enjoy all the benefits of city life but small enough that there’s still a strong sense of community and everything is within easy reach reach.

Lying in the heart of the East Midlands, Nottingham is a major transport center that has been on the property growth radar for a couple of years now. Rapid house price increases are no longer confined to the South of England. There’s a growing number of cities across the UK that are gaining the attention of buyers and investors, and Nottingham is one of them.

What is the average price of a house in Nottingham?

We know that Nottingham continues to be a popular area because of the increase in house prices in recent years. When a location becomes popular, house prices rise. Nottingham’s rate of house price growth over the past year was among the fastest in the nation. According to data from the Halifax bank, the region’s average home prices increased by 13% to the end of November 2022. Nottingham properties sold for an average of £286,696 over the year, up £32,966 in the last 12 months.

According to Rightmove, the town of Eastwood in Nottinghamshire was 2022’s top price hotspot. House prices in the area, which sits between the cities of Derby and Nottingham, rose by 29% last year, putting the average price of a home at £231,381. It’s important to note that this price is still around £85,000 less than the average house price of £316,000 in England (August 2022), making Nottingham a great place for investors looking to expand their portfolio.

Why is Nottingham a popular place to live?

Nottingham continues to be an attractive place to live and invest. Nottingham has a great music scene, is home to around 60,000 students, and has endless cultural hotspots like the Nottingham Natural History Museum and the Windmill and Science Centre.
