Leeds is a city in the northern English county of Yorkshire. On the south bank of the River Aire, the Royal Armouries houses the national collection of arms and artillery. Across the river, the redeveloped industrial area around Call Lane is famed for bars and live music venues under converted railway arches.
After London and Birmingham, the third largest city in the United Kingdom is Leeds with a metro population of 2,638,127.
Recently found to be the best city in the UK for quality of life, Leeds plays host to world class culture, incredible shopping, tremendous job opportunities, stunning architecture and a varied housing stock. All of this whilst remaining an affordable place to live, regardless of your budget.
Leeds is, to many, a student city. Whilst that means a steady flow of jobs and prosperity for the city, it also means that canny buyers can do well renting their property to students. Areas like Hyde Park and Headingley are extremely popular with the student population, and so there’s always a strong demand for student housing.
Over the last three years, the average market value of a Leeds property was £203,825, over £15k less than the UK average.
Property values in Leeds have been enjoying a steady increase over the last 12 months, rising 5.14% - a total value change of £9,666 for the average property. That’s good, strong growth for a city in the North, and the 5-year total shows that house prices have leapt 23.75%.
