Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

YORK­SHIRE house sales have risen over the past year as buy­ers take ad­van­tage of at­trac­tive mort­gage deals, say es­tate agency Wil­liam H Brown.

The firm says Har­ro­gate is boom­ing with the aver­age prop­erty price soar­ing 6 per cent over the past month alone to £150,769. Sales are up 13 per cent over the past year.

York prices are up 1.5 per cent on last year, as sales trans­ac­tions in­crease 7 per cent an­nu­ally.

Hud­der­s­field prices rose 4 per cent in a month and sales were up 7 per cent in the same pe­riod

Area di­rec­tor Jo Whin­cup says: “The pace of sales trans­ac­tions across York­shire is hot­ting up. It’s en­cour­ag­ing to see ap­pli­ca­tions for mort­gages from first-time buy­ers in­creas­ing by over a third.”
