The Exeter lifestyle

5. Housing

Exeter has a good selection of property types.  These include traditional Victorian terraced houses, modern housing on new developments, 1930s semi-detached family houses, flats and apartments, converted historical buildings, large detached properties and some bungalows.

On the outskirts of Exeter, there are a growing number of new estates with modern housing.  Delightful old-fashioned villages with traditional thatched cottages offer an alternative for retired people or those happy to commute.

For those considering relocation to the area or a change of property, one of our Exeter Estate Agents should be able to give advice.

If you are currently living in an unsuitable home, you may be able to gain priority on the Devon Home Choice scheme. They will assess your need for social housing. As demand far outweighs supply, the possibility of securing social housing in Exeter may be unlikely unless you have a high need.
