The region comprises Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. It may not be as well known as its neighbours, but what you will find is an area filled with thriving large cities, tranquil picture postcard villages and historic market towns, as well as vistas that will take your breath away.

In terms of house price growth, Nottingham registers the fastest growth of any city in the UK at 7.5% year-on-year. As prices rise from a low base there is still scope for investors to take advantage of any capital growth

The East Midlands as a whole is a hub of students and graduates, with eight universities within the region and 17 within an hour of travel.

With many of these universities being some of the best in the country, it’s no surprise that almost half of Derby’s population (48%) is under 35. Often referred to as ‘generation rent’, this growing population of graduates and young professionals further highlights the investment opportunities within the East Midlands.
