Strength of prices in Wharfe valley
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.
