Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

NEW HOMES: More than 150,000 new homes were regis­tered in the UK by NHBC in 2016, the se­cond high­est in al­most a decade. The 2016 fig­ures rep­re­sent a 70 per cent in­crease in reg­is­tra­tions com­pared to lev­els seen at the time of the hous­ing crash in 2008/09. Seven out of 12 re­gions ex­pe­ri­enced an in­crease in reg­is­tra­tions, most no­tably York­shire up 27 per cent and the South East up 14 per cent com­pared to 2015 fig­ures. In terms of house types, 2016 saw the high­est num­ber of de­tached homes regis­tered in the UK since 2004 and the high­est num­ber of semi-de­tached since records be­gan 30 years ago.
