Research by the Barclays UK property predictor offers good news for Yorkshire property investors in the face of UK-wide uncertainty. As house prices decline in London, Yorkshire is predicted to hold its own with a projected increase in housing prices of 3.6% over the next five years.
Yorkshire’s healthy mix of bustling cities like Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford, Wakefield & Doncaster which provides healthy employment opportunities with ideal locations for families looking for either the urban or rural lifestyle, is exactly what investors are looking for in “the Brexit uncertainty” suggests Ray Withers of Property Frontiers.
Withers continued “One of Yorkshire’s attractions is the range of investments and locations that it offers. This is truly a county with property to suit every budget – hence its rapidly growing status as a top UK investment honeypot”.
Withers suggests that in amongst the popular and more well-known investment locations such as Leeds and Sheffield, Yorkshire boasts a number of opportunities for different levels of investment. These include the huge metropolitan district that is Bradford which is the UK’s fifth fastest growing city. Bradford is experiencing a steady increase in investment and is earmarked as a possible future high speed rail link.
The guide then suggests areas such as Doncaster, Wakefield and Halifax with strong transport links but where incredible property value can be found. On the flip side, there is the more traditional charm of Scarborough on the east coast that is inviting investment looking for something a bit different.
