Nottingham First-time Buyers Keeping our Local Property Market Afloat
The Nottingham housing market is relativity buoyant, thanks to an unexpected group of people – Nottingham first-time buyers.
Many Nottingham tenants are annoyed with competing for Nottingham rental properties at high rents. Therefore, over the last 12 months, many renters have been stretching their finances to get on the Nottingham housing ladder, despite sky-high mortgage rates.

of the 10,258 properties bought in the last 12 months in the Nottingham area, 2,780 were bought by first-time buyers.
