During the months of July to September 2017, almost 38,000 new build homes were registered by builders according to NHBC. NHBC hold 80% of New Build warranty market across the UK so their statistics provide a good indicator of new house building nationwide.
NHBC chief executive Steve Wood commented on this statistics that “We have seen encouraging growth in terms of the number of new homes being registered over the last three months, across many parts of the country.
“With demand for high quality new homes as strong as ever, this is positive news for the industry and prospective homebuyers, particularly in light of the current political and economic uncertainties.”
