Great di­vide over farm­house prices

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
