The Location:

People move to Lincolnshire, primarily, for the quality of life on offer: a real mix of bustling historic market towns, idyllic villages, miles of un-spoilt coastline, areas of outstanding natural beauty and one of the greatest cathedral cities in Britain.

Property prices are typically 60% of the average of those in the south east – first time buyers can take their first step on the property ladder for as little as £60,000.

The average price for property in Lincolnshire stood at £210,546 in April 2019. This is a rise of 0.15% in the last three months (since January 2019) and rise of 1.82% since 12 months ago. In terms of property types, flats in Lincolnshire sold for an average of £125,761 and terraced houses for £147,278.

If you require a larger family home or just like lots of space, then £250,000 will buy you something very special indeed.

Lincolnshire also has a diverse and fast growing economy, low unemployment, a healthy environment, low crime rates, health and education facilities well above the national average and affordable housing.

Lincolnshire is a county with plenty on offer to enhance any type of lifestyle by day or by night, in towns, villages and in Lincoln itself. That’s why there’s something for everyone in Lincolnshire.
