Corby has been announced as one of Britain’s ‘booming’ towns according to exclusive data from Savills’ estate agency who scrutinised 438 settlements in England and Wales that were home to at least 20,000 people.  The study used data from the Office National Statistics and the Land Registry. 


Along with 22 other top towns, Corby is amongst those thought to be the most desirable to both employers and homeowners along with thriving communities, a growing population and property prices on the rise. According to statistics, Corby has seen the highest growth in average house prices, 29.3% since June 2016.


Corby has very competitively priced new build homes across the Borough on attractive new development sites.  Older properties offer great value for money with traditional three-bedroom properties selling between £150,000 and £200,000.


Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said:


“It is fantastic to see positive articles like this which gives the Borough of Corby the excellent reputation it deserves. Corby is a place where jobs are being created, the population is increasing year on year and house sales are buoyant.  I am confident that growth and the aspiration to live and work in Corby will continue in the years to come”.
