Yorkshire prices show rise this year
AVERAGE Yorkshire property prices grew by four per cent annually to £133,504 in October, according to William H. Brown.
Sales transactions in the county are up 30% annually and 2% on month in October. Demand for homes, which rose by 24%, grew at four times rate of property supply. Harrogate prices have risen 7% annually
Jo Whincup, area director at William H Brown, says: “Over the last six months we have seen a resurgence of the housing market in the North, and particularly Yorkshire, with sustained property price growth in the region over that period. The average Yorkshire property price is now £133,504, the highest since 2010.
“The reason for this is high levels of demand and lack of supply.”
