Buy­ers flock to a buoy­ant York

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
