East Midlands performs well in Quality of Life Survey

As an east Midlands estate agent, Winkworth sees on a daily basis how wonderful this region is. Now a new survey to find the best places to live in England has also recognised the area. The 2014 annual Quality of Life Survey, compiled by the Halifax, contains the top 50 places for people to live in the country. Although it was dominated by places in the south east of England, South Northamptonshire made a strong showing at number seven in the league table, beating off towns and areas such as Sevenoaks, Windsor and Kensington & Chelsea. The rankings are compiled using a variety of third party sources, including data from the Office for National Statistics, figures from various government departments and information from the Met Office, which make the results valuable reading for east Midlands estate agents. Factors that are taken into account when ranking areas include residents' health and well being, education, employment levels, crime rates, weather and broadband access. Other east Midlands areas also featured in the top 50, nestling among the many towns from Home County favourites such as Surrey, Kent and Hampshire. Rutland as a region actually posted at number four - a leap of 17 places when compared to 2013's survey - with South Kesteven listed at number 33 and North Kesteven at number 40. It's fantastic to see areas outside of the South east gain recognition for their quality of life. Many of the houses for in the east Midlands are bought by home movers looking for an improved lifestyle, including better access to open space, a more community-orientated way of life and good schooling. There's a myth that anywhere outside of London and the South east is some kind of back water but the east Midlands enjoys a thriving economy where there are job opportunities, super fast broadband connections and leisure facilities to cater for all interests. Winkworth is pleased to be marketing flats and houses for sale in the east Midlands, many in South Northamptonshire's finest areas, including Deanshanger, Brackley, Bugbrooke and Towecester. Interestingly, the report also found that Rutland, along with Uttlesford in Essex and Chiltern in South Buckinghamshire, had the biggest homes, typically with 6.4 habitable rooms. If you are thinking of moving to the east Midlands and would like more information about the region and the lifestyle on offer, contact Winkworth today. We would also be pleased to help home movers in the east Midlands who are looking to sell or let a property.
