Demand For Yorkshire Homes Remains High

More people than ever before will want to speak to the best estate agents Hull has to offer.

 

This is as Yorkshire is bucking the housing market trend, with more people than ever wanting to live in Yorkshire.

 

This bucks the national-trend where a shortage of housing and Brexit fears has slowed the housing market, and benefit-cuts have led to rent falls in London for the first time in many years. Estate agents in the South East have even had to admit they have run out of houses to sell, in recent months.

 

House price growth in Yorkshire is still thought to be partly dependent on low housing stock in the region, alongside high demand as more and more people explore the possibility of relocating to the region.

 

The Yorkshire Post reported 14% month-on-month increase in buyers in Harrogate, and a 20 per cent increase across Yorkshire since the beginning of the year.

 

House sellers and buyers should also relax about the election, which due to being called so late in the day, hasn’t caused the slowdown in the market which is often seen in this situations. As the pre-election jitters will only last a month or so, sellers and buyers are continuing at a normal pace for this time of year.

 

 

The reasons why many people may want to move to Yorkshire are varied, but could include the promotion of the region as a sporting and leisure destination, and also due to the improved links to jobs in major cities such as York, Sheffield, Hull and Leeds.
