2016: A great time to move to York
2016 marked incredibly positive property figures region-wide in York as compared to the rest of Yorkshire. Whilst the average property price in Yorkshire stood at £170,000, homes in York fetched 43% more – on average fetching £243,000. What’s more, it seems that the financial crisis has been all but completely forgotten, as homes throughout York are an impressive 13.4% above the peak just before the credit crunch hit in 2007 (Savills).
“Buyers moving from the capital still play an important role as we see the ripple effect continue. In some cases, the London commuter belt reaches as far as York, with 24% of buyers of prime property in York and 7% of buyers in the surrounding villages working in London, although often just three days a week. This comes as buyers recognise the very large value advantage”.
