A new home for 2020? The most expensive and affordable Yorkshire postcodes

Written by on December 18, 2019

Is 2020 the year of the big move for you? Perhaps you need a bigger house – or it’s time to downsize. Maybe you’re thinking about moving for schools, or you fancy a change of scenery. Whatever your reason, the Christmas holidays is a good time to start planning – which is probably why the period between Christmas and New Year is so busy for websites like Rightmove!

An article caught our eye in the Yorkshire Post a couple of weeks ago, looking at average house prices in the region, and the cheapest – and most expensive – postcodes in Yorkshire.

The average price of a house in Yorkshire and the Humber is now more than £192,700 according to online estate agent Housesimple. North Yorkshire boasts the more expensive average price at £266,500 – helped no doubt by the awards Harrogate keeps winning for being the best place to live in the country, as well as the many beautiful villages and towns across the region.

Lincolnshire had the most affordable average house price at £154,600 – but in terms of an actual town or city, Bradford topped the bill. BD1 has the lowest average property price at £73,200, with other areas including Hull, Grimsby, Cleethorpes and some areas of Sheffield which were potentially good locations for first time buyers looking to get a step on the property ladder.

Unsurprisingly, perhaps, the HG3 postcode remained the most expensive ‘average price’ postcode at £395,300. S17 in Sheffield followed, along with LS22 in Leeds, which includes Collingham, Wetherby and Linton.

And there’s positive predictions from real estate experts at JLL who believe house prices will rise almost 15 per cent over the next five years, with Yorkshire and the Humber expected to be one of the regions to outperform the others. The company also expects rental growth to improve by 12 per cent over the same time period, meaning it could be a good time to think about investing in a rental property.

Testimonials

Jodie and Sarah were fantastic. They managed to sort out a storage unit for me straight away and even stayed after they should have shut to help me out. I would have been absolutely stuck if they hadn’t gone the extra mile.
It’s rare these days to get that level of service. MASSIVE thank you.

The staff are friendly and helpful (Huddersfield). My belonging are very safe and secure with loads of cameras and you can't enter without a person code. The storage rooms are nice and dry so all the stuff are safe from damp and mold ect.
I would definitely recommend and the price was great.
