5 Brilliant Reasons to Buy a House in Newark

buy a house in Newark

If you're considering whether to buy a house in Newark, and you're not sure if it's the place for you, then this post is a must-read! A town that is jam-packed full of history, culture and local colour, we believe that Newark is a real hidden treasure.  Here are just 5 of the many reasons to live there...

1) Easy access to the city and countryside

As far back as the 1600's, Charles I chose Newark as a royalist stronghold because of its strong strategic position. Today, people are still drawn to the market town because of its location. With great rail and road connections, commuting is a breeze, while also being close enough to some beautiful countryside to offer a great mix of city living and rural charm.

The A1 is close at hand and London is only an hour or so away by train, so Newark is definitely well placed for people who want to work in the city during the week and play in the countryside at the weekends.

2) Outstanding schools

Like...literally! The town's Chuter Ede primary school and the Tuxford Academy secondary school both received an 'Outstanding' rating from Ofsted after their last inspections. 

Other fantastic schools can also be found in nearby Southwell, Lincoln and Nottingham.

3) It's the happiest town in the East Midlands!

At least it was according to the Happy at Home survey conducted in 2017 by Rightmove... The survey was answered by 17,000 people across the UK and factored in things like community, safety, amenities and cost of living.

4) There are plenty of attractions

Whether you're into history, culture, shopping, eating out or just going for long walks in the countryside, Newark has something for everyone.

The gorgeous castle is a great place for exploring and picnics.

The river provides beautiful places to walk or just to sit and admire the views.

Visit the historic Georgian town hall or admire the stately splendour of the St Mary Magdalene church.

Newark Market is open nearly every day of the week and the Market Square is full of character and wonderful local businesses such as GH Porter Provisions and The Bean & Vine.

5) House prices

One of the most sought after areas in Newark is the conservation area, around Millgate. It offers some wonderful views of the river while also being conveniently close to the centre of town.

The good news is that average house prices in Newark are just £212,984 - that's considerably lower than the national average of £230,292!

Absolutely delighted with the service we received from Dean. The advice we received was timely and thorough; the service provided went above and beyond our expectations compared to other mortgage advisors we have used in the past and the whole application process was made straightforward and stress free. Overall, an excellent value for money service that I would highly recommend.

Mr L

Mr L hadn’t sold his house but had found the house of his dreams, we arranged a mortgage that allowed him to buy his new house without selling and a mortgage that was flexible enough for him to pay a large amount off when he sells his house.

Miss G

Miss G sold her house and had found a new house, it all looked straight forward but she had a historical bankruptcy which meant lots of lenders were declining her. We found her a mainstream high street lender that would offer a mortgage even with her previous bankruptcy.

Mr W

Mr W works abroad but wanted to buy a buy to let property, most lenders will require him to own and live in in a mortgaged property in the UK, however we found a lender that would lend at sensible interest rates for a new buy to let purchase.

Mr C

Mr C wanted to buy a student house in Lincoln via a limited company to take advantage of the income tax benefits of this. He spoke with other brokers and high street lenders all of which said it wasn’t possible. We found a building society who specialise in this with sensible fees and interest rates.
