Yorkshire top for FTBs
Lindley, on the outskirts of Huddersfield, is the top property hotspot for the coming year and is the ideal place for first-time buyers to invest, according to the Royal Bank Scotland’s first-time buyer PropertyIndex.
It reveals that Lindley, which is currently the focus of some interesting new build projects, offers relatively low average property prices at £138,886; compared to a national average of £193,489.
Lindley offers an enticing climate for first-time buyers, with developments of new homes that will see the restoration of 19th century mills into luxury apartments. The area has also experienced 125 per cent growth in house prices over the past six years, which is significantly higher than the national average of 103 per cent.
And the town is in proximity to Leeds, which is under 30-minutes away by car.
