LS5 is the most popular postcode in Leeds, and properties vary from Victorian back-to-back houses to modern apartments and stylish family homes.
All property types are in high demand. Currently there are 3,500 properties for sale in Leeds, 30% below the national average. This is great news for buy-to-let landlords as many people will rent properties in Leeds while looking for the perfect property to buy.
However, despite this high demand, when the right property in Leeds comes along, it is usually at an affordable price. Many houses in Leeds start from under £100,000. Even a traditional three bedroom semi in popular areas like Alwoodley, Moortown or Roundhay can usually be found for under £250,000.
The city centre hasn’t had many new builds in recent years – there was a time when 400 new apartments were constructed each year. However, those who would buy these properties (young professionals) tend to stay in the fashionable Chapel Allerton – a place with a vibrant and exciting art scene, along with pubs, clubs and late-night destinations to keep them entertained.
Families in Leeds tend to stick to Alwoodley Lane, Wigton Lane and the Sandmoors area because they are all within the catchment areas for the area’s ‘outstanding’ schools. Larger homes in this area can cost in excess of £1 million.
Up and coming Leeds property areas
The government and the council are determined to reduce the strain on the housing market by introducing a number of development schemes in key areas; Leeds city centre, Hunslet Riverside, and Clarence Dock. Most of these developments belong to the City Living scheme.
Leeds estate agents predict that the Leeds housing market will become even more buoyant in the next 20 years. Holbeck Urban village, which will be home to Burberry’s weaving mill, and the Aire Valley regeneration project, which includes building on brownfield sites to create 40,000 jobs and 112,000 homes are just two of the exciting developments underway in this vibrant city.
While properties in Leeds may seem few and far between, investing here is worthwhile, as this city is still only at the beginning of its regeneration cycle. Property prices in Leeds have a lot more room to grow in the coming months and years.
