Is the New Bolsover Model Village a good place to buy/live in terms of safety, re-sale value etc?

I personally think that any area, you are interested in buying in, that you go at different times of the day to see how it is.
The other thing to do, would be to look on zoopla at what prices properties have bought & sold for in that postcode to get a idea.

I really wouldn't expect much in the way of 'unbiased' answers in respect of your question - those who post MAY have vested interests!
For what it's worth, here's one from someone approximately 150 miles away in Blyth, Northumberland - who's never even visited the place!!
I am an Estate Agent - it is my job to 'sell' property that I have on the market. In reality, the homes sell themselves - I just have to get people through the door!
For 35 years, I have told people NOT to ask me what an area is like - but to go there, get out onto the streets, and TALK to people walking dogs, gardening or generally looking like they live there, and ask THEM what it is like.
Unless they have a For Sale board outside their home, they have no reason to tell you anything other than the truth.
BUT... make sure you ask more than one... just in case! ;o)
With regard to resale VALUE - that can change with the wind and is virtually impossible to predict. in fact - forget I used the word 'virtually' in that last sentence. It's resaleABILITY you should be concerned about - as EVERY house WILL sell... SOMETIME. When you buy, you want to feel that when you are ready to sell, the home you have will sell in good time.
Hope this is of some help - and good luck with whatever you do.
