Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

NORTHALLER­TON fea­tures in a list of the best-per­form­ing towns over the past three years.

The list, com­piled by the Hal­i­fax, re­veals that south­ern towns have gen­er­ally out­per­formed the rest of the coun­try.

Seven of the ten towns with the high­est house price growth since 2007 are in the south of Eng­land. The Wilt­shire town of West­bury recorded the big­gest in­crease in house prices, with the av­er­age house price in­creas­ing by 8.9% be­tween 2007 and 2010. Shet­land in Scot­land (5.1%) and Barn­sta­ple in Devon (4.2%) were the next best per­form­ers. In the North, Al­trin­cham (3.3%) and Northaller­ton (3.0%) were among the ten best. Only 6% of all the towns sur­veyed saw a rise in prices.
