By Emily O'Donoghue

The East Midlands saw the highest annual house price growth in England in the year leading up to April 2020, with prices increasing by 4.7%.

The average house price in the UK saw a rise of 2.6% over the same period, according to the Office for National Statistics House Price Index.

The average house price in the East Midlands is estimated to rise from £190,000 in 2018 to £214,000 by 2022 – a projected house price growth of over 12.6% over the four-year period.

What does this mean for Derby?
