In Yorkshire, house prices have risen by 14 per cent over the year from March 2020 to March 2021.

The UK House Price Index for March showed that property values were 10.2 per cent higher across the country than a year earlier – the fastest annual rate of growth for 14 years.

According to the BBC, family homes are more popular, partly because people have reassessed their priorities during Covid lockdowns. However, prices of apartments are still rising and there are some signs of buyers taking the chance to make a move into lively cities as restrictions ease.
