Prices shoot up­n­ear football grounds

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

HOUSE prices close to Pre­mier League football grounds have soared by al­most two and a half times over the last ten years, ac­cord­ing to re­search by Hal­i­fax.

The aver­age house price in the postal dis­tricts of the 20 clubs kick­ing off the new sea­son has climbed by 135 per cent (£183,583) in the past decade. This is equiv­a­lent to a weekly rise of £353 and is dou­ble the 68 per cent in­crease in house prices across Eng­land and Wales as a whole over the pe­riod.

Homes close to Manch­ester City’s ground topped the ta­ble, with a 259 per cent rise. The area around pro­moted Hull City’s KC Sta­dium has seen the sec­ond big­gest in­crease, with a rise in aver­age prop­erty prices of 162 per cent.
