Strength of prices in Wharfe val­ley

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE Ilk­ley branch of Hunters cel­e­brated its first an­niver­sary this month.

Owner Lester Hurst is de­lighted with the re­sponse to the start-up busi­ness and says Ilk­ley and the Wharfe Val­ley is as strong as ever.

“The av­er­age house price in Ilk­ley is dou­ble that of the av­er­age prop­erty price in West York­shire and this is down to a well-es­tab­lished mar­ket, along with good schools and ex­cel­lent trans­port links to Leeds and Brad­ford, mak­ing it a de­sir­able and most re­li­able area to live.

“Many buy­ers are mov­ing from much fur­ther afield. My lat­est buy­ers have moved over from New York, with no com­mit­ment to the area, sim­ply for what it has to of­fer,” Mr Hurst said.
