Great divide over farmhouse prices
THE Yorkshire farmhouse market is polarised across the region, according to research by property consultants Carter Jonas.
Over the first quarter of 2011, Harrogate and Huddersfield registered average farmhouse price increases of 5.8 per cent and 2.8 per cent respectively.
This is in contrast to York and Leeds which recorded a fall in prices over the last quarter of -3.4 per cent and -4.3 per cent. Tony Wright, head of residential at Carter Jonas’ Harrogate office, says: “Traditionally, the residential market picks up in the spring. All the offices are reporting good activity levels and properties that are sensibly priced are achieving good prices and moving relatively quickly.”
