Buyers flock to a buoyant York
Prime property prices in York are holding up well, according to Ben Pridden, of Savills.
“York lives in its own bubble. Its mix of excellent schools, stunning architecture and period and new build property means it attracts buyers from across the country.”
But Savills forecasts that prime regional property prices in Yorkshire will fall by 1 per cent during 2010, compared with a predicted fall of 6.7 per cent for mid-and low-end properties.
Ben says: “I see prime streets in York, the Howardian Hills and villages around, and including Helmsley and Ampleforth, continuing to sell well for the time being.”
