Pygott & Crone Sits on Midlands Engine Housing Panel
When I initially started going to the week-long event in Cannes 19 years ago the reaction I often had was ‘why does an estate agent based in Lincolnshire need to go to MIPIM?’ And my response has always been the same – what better place to market Lincolnshire and the fantastic investment opportunities the city and wider county has to offer?
With more than 25,000 property professionals actively looking for a developer partner, a new development site or a buyer for a major new development it really is the ‘go to’ property event of the year.
This year I’ve been invited to sit on the panel for a discussion on the future of the UK’s housing market alongside the Chair of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Chair of Berkeley Homes.
Because of Pygott & Crone’s presence in London, our membership in the Relocation Agent Network (RAN) and 30 years’ experience in property, I’ve seen how the housing market has evolved and what’s next for property in the Midlands region.
More developers from the south, and overseas are waking up to the opportunities the Midlands has to offer in terms of affordable land and a there is a significant amount of public sector owned land which is earmarked for residential and mixed-use development up for grabs.
2017 is set to be an exciting year for property development in the Midlands so if you work in residential property don’t miss the discussion taking place in the Midlands Pavilion at 5pm on 15th March.
The Midlands Pavilion will bring together for the first time the best that the Midlands has to offer from across Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, a culmination of work by the 11 Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP) within the region.
Once again I’m thrilled to be part of Team Lincolnshire who has joined forces to help make this happen. There are some major developments in Lincolnshire, contributing to the wider growth of the region that are having a real impact on regeneration in the area and boosting Lincolnshire’s economy.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing
The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
