Here's how you can get your first home in Derby for under £200,000

Since 2017, the average house price in Mickleover has gone up by 14%, with an average house in the area now costs £259,009. This, combined with the economic impact of coronavirus, has made it especially difficult to get on the property ladder in this popular suburb.

"Here at Redrow East Midlands we are committed to helping people get on the property ladder, and are keen to make the process quick, easy and affordable."

Redrow Homes East Midlands are now offering two-bedroom homes perfect for couples, small families and first-time buyers for under £200,000 at its popular development, Hackwood Grange, situated in Mickleover.


Redrow Homes East Midlands recently reopened its sales centre at Hackwood Grange, following updated guidance issued by Government to re-start the English housing market.


Hackwood Grange has made a number of modifications to allow house hunters to undertake complete visits safely. This includes offering exclusive, unaccompanied appointments for house viewings, screening safety videos ahead of appointments, ensuring sales consultants are always two metres away from the customer, and installing protective screens and hand sanitiser throughout the sales centre. A thorough cleanse is performed after each appointment.


The Edale, a two-bedroom home available from £199,950, is perfect for young professionals, or a couple’s first home. The open-plan ground floor maximises the space, giving a modern feel, perfect for socialising with friends. The two double bedrooms are ideal for small families, giving more than enough room for a generous master bedroom and a nursery.


Ryan O’Sullivan, Area Sales Manager, for Redrow Homes East Midlands, said: “Here at Redrow East Midlands we are committed to helping people get on the property ladder, and are keen to make the process quick, easy and affordable for those looking for their ideal home in the area.

“We know that life in lockdown has put the plans of many prospective buyers on hold, as well as reinforcing what people want and need from their new home. The Edale is a popular, accessible option for those looking to buy a home in Mickleover for the first time. The high specification, comfortable interior means that affordability does not compromise on quality.”


Alongside the robust procedures in place to support customers wishing to physically view developments, Redrow has also invested heavily in technology to enable a smoother virtual transaction. Through the My Redrow customer portal, buyers can view different developments and plots online, select chosen plots and even select and review optional upgrades to their home.


Last year, Redrow launched an online reservation service which also now allows buyers to legally complete the reservation of their new home online, further minimising the need to spend time in sales centres. This service allows customers to read and review all documents from the consumer code and warranty information, through to a series of pre-reservation legal documents, at their own pace and in their own home.


Mickleover is a popular location surrounded by beautiful farmland and still has the convenience of excellent transport links to Derby, situated just two miles away. The town also has brand new facilities, including nearby shops, playing fields and schools.


The sales centre is now open for visitors. For those preferring to book an appointment, or for more information about Hackwood Grange, visit: www.redrow.co.uk/developments/hackwood-grange
