Why You Should Invest in Property in the South West


A vast area of the country where house prices are historically strong and stable, the South West is a great place to invest in property. From country retreats in Salisbury to beachside living in St Ives, quaint fishing villages to bustling cities, it has a diverse market suitable for all kinds of buyers – including those after new build homes. Because it’s so large and varied, getting to grips with where to invest in the South West can be tough. That’s why we’ve put together this list of five great South West locations for your consideration.

1. Bristol

Bristol is the South West’s powerhouse city, and therefore the local housing market is suitably busy. There’s always a huge demand for properties in the area, with new homes constantly coming onto the market. You could get involved with this when you buy one of the 3 or 4 bedroom homes on our superb Ladden Garden Village development in the popular suburb of Yate.

2. Bath

If you’re looking for a desirable place to invest South West, city Bath is tough to beat. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site packed with ancient history, this small city has a big reputation when it comes to its property market. People are always going to want to live here, so it’s the perfect place to put your money into. You can do just that when you snap up a new build at Hunters Wood, which is only a short drive from the centre of Bath.

3. Gloucester

Gloucester may not be quite as famous for its history as Bath, but Gloucestershire’s county town has a rich heritage to go with its excellent location. Benefiting from the impressive local architecture and close proximity to a range of natural beauty spots, these are the kinds of traits investors will always look out for. As such, you’ll need to be quick if you want to secure a 3 or 4 bed home on our Rosewood Grange development just to the south of the city centre.

4. Bournemouth

Seaside towns are always popular among homebuyers, and Bournemouth certainly falls into this category. One of the best coastal spots to invest in anywhere in the South West, the town centre is a lively place to spend some time, while the outskirts open up to beautiful natural landscapes such as Cranbourne Chase and the New Forest. Not to mention the long stretch of sandy shoreline along the English Channel. We’ve got two great developments with new build homes currently available in this area; Canford Paddock and Quarter Jack Park.

5. Taunton

If you’re searching for a great place to invest South West, Taunton is well worth a look. Lying between the Quantock Hills and Blackdown Hills, while also being conveniently located for the M5 motorway, this is another desirable place to live in the South West. You can find some excellent 3 and 4 bed new builds on our Moorland Gate and Nerrols Grange developments in this area, designed for the contemporary way of life and built to exacting modern standards.
