The Yorkshire property market is booming as an ever-increasing number of people choose to make the county their home.
Recent statistics show that house prices in Yorkshire have risen at four times the national average, topping the UK table for growth, reinforcing the message that Yorkshire has much to offer house buyers from across the market. Leading housebuilder Miller Homes has seen an increase in enquiries from across the UK for their local developments, as demand for brand new homes in Yorkshire surges too.
“Demand for our homes has been phenomenal, and we are proud that we have actually sold all homes that will be completed in 2021,” said Sarah Whinfrey, Regional Sales Manager, Miller Homes Yorkshire. “To facilitate this growing demand, we will be opening three more developments towards the end of 2021 in York, Wakefield and Doncaster, and have many more planned for 2022.”
As Yorkshire folk celebrate Yorkshire Day, which takes place annually on 1st August, the steady stream of people wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of cities and enjoy the more rural counties continues.
“We have seen buyers purchasing our homes that have been able to move away from their work location now that working from home is set to continue for many employees across the UK,” said Sarah. “Buyers are often surprised at the competitive house prices, size of home available versus the cost, and the fact that, even in our towns and cities, you never seem that far away from a peaceful spot, or our amazing countryside or coastline.”
Indeed, one buyer chose to relocate to a more rural location rather than buying a home in the city where he worked, Jake King, a resident at City Fields in Wakefield commented; “I had been looking for somewhere to buy my first home that gave great commuting into Leeds when I did need to be at the office, but that wasn’t a city centre development. I liked the overall feel of City Fields, its location and attractive house prices, but particularly the house styles that Miller offered.”
There are currently six developments located across the Yorkshire region at; Bramhope, Wakefield, Drighlington, Apperley Bridge, Thorpe Willoughby and Boroughbridge. Offering properties ranging from two-bedroom town houses to five-bedroom luxury homes. Prices currently start from £214,995 for a three-bedroom semi-detached ‘Overton’ at Kings Park in Drighlington.
