Why You Should Buy a House in Leeds

6th March 2019 posted in Property News

Leeds is fast becoming one of the best places to live - not only in northern England, but in the UK as a whole.

There are lots of great things about this city. From the job opportunities and excellent city centre, to the wonderful places you can choose to live.

It has a busy housing market that is only expected to grow and grow over the next few years.

Which is one of the reasons you should look to buy a property in the area as soon as possible.

This blog sets out the key benefits of purchasing a house or flat in Leeds.

Simply Put, It’s a Great Place to Live

We may be a little biased - being based in Leeds - but we truly believe this is one of the finest places to live in the country.

Which is the main reason you should buy a property here, so you can experience this for yourself.

There’s lots of things to do, whether you’re based centrally or on the outskirts, and a wide range of fantastic restaurants to eat at.

And, this being Yorkshire, there are plenty of fantastic pubs for you to check out.

But our favourite thing about Leeds is how you can be in a busy city centre, and only 15 minutes away from some of the most beautiful countryside in England.

A Boosted Economy Means More Jobs

There has been a huge amount of investment into Leeds over the last few years, particularly in the heart of the city.

Residents have noticed new, modern buildings go up month after month.

And this is a good sign of a strong economy. With more office buildings and other outlets, there are lots of job opportunities.

Which makes it an appealing place to live.

The economy has grown by 34 percent over the last decade, according to the council, and is expected to grow by another 21 percent over the next ten years.

There Are a Variety of Different Places to Live

As mentioned, there isn’t much distance between the city centre of Leeds, and some of the smaller villages on the outskirts.

So you can choose to live centrally, perhaps in a flat. Or you can decide to live a little out of the way, in a more rural neighbourhood.

Leeds also caters to people with different budgets. If you’re looking for something more affordable, there are plenty of options.

But it also boasts a luxury property market. Some truly incredible properties pop up on the market every now and again.

It’s all about personal preference really - but Leeds can cater to practically everyone.

The Housing Market

Not only are there plenty of areas for you to choose from - Leeds also has lots of different types of houses you can decide to live in.

From flats and terraces, to detached and semi-detached houses.
