A record number of people are looking to move to our region and demand is outstripping the supply of available properties, meaning homes are selling faster than ever before, with many being sold either at or above the asking price.  Both coastal and countryside locations are proving popular and this is pushing up prices in sought after towns and villages throughout Essex and Suffolk.  Here we look at six unique properties currently on the market with our Signature and New Homes teams.
