Dewsbury - Where Is It?

Dewsbury is a minster town located just south of Leeds, to the east of Huddersfield and to the west of Wakefield.

According to the 2011 census, it has a population of approximately 62,945 people. So it isn’t the largest or most populous place. But people here prefer living somewhere that has a very strong community feel.

If you do decide to live in Dewsbury, this is probably something you’ll want to embrace. But those who prefer city living tend to settle down in nearby Leeds.

How Much Does It Cost to Live in Dewsbury?

Dewsbury isn’t a particularly expensive place to live. Buying a house is very much affordable for a lot of people.

The overall average price of a property in Dewsbury is approximately £132,400. Obviously this depends on the type of property it is you’re wanting to buy. Terraced properties, for example, cost on average £96,800.

So, as you can see, it’s relatively cheap. But there are some more premium properties on the market too. If you look in the more affluent parts of town, you can find multiple million pound homes.

The Most Common Types of Housing

A quick look at the Hunters website will show you there are lots of properties currently available on the market.

And, as mentioned, they’re all different types. From flats and terraced housing, to detached and semi-detached houses. Properties on the more affordable end of the scale are a lot more common than those that are more expensive.

If you do want a million pound home, or something in the £500k+ range, you might have to wait for something to become available. But if you’re after more modest accommodation, you’ll have plenty of options.
