It’s always nice to hear a bit of good news, especially when it comes to one of the most expensive things we might buy in our lifetime. And it’s even better news, in these cash strapped times, when we hear it could make us money!

There are certainly some exciting things happening in house buying at the minute and according to a recent survey by a major home buying website, it’s in no small part down to house prices in Leicester climbing.

The latest figures from the survey by home.co.uk reveal that prices in the East Midlands are up more than five per cent on last year and they have made a mammoth leap of 20 per cent since 2011! The survey also indicated that the East Midlands had the largest potential for growth alongside the South West and South Midlands. And if that wasn’t enough to be going on with, according to home’s company director, Doug Shephard, the consistent rise will be a trend that will last well into 2017.
