Is Huddersfield A Nice Place To Live?

Tue 04 Jan 2022

At ADM Residential, we like to think we know the Huddersfield housing market, and why so many people call Huddersfield their home.

We understand property buyers have to consider a lot of factors when looking for a home. The price of property and your budget will always matter. External elements like schools and transport will also play a big part in the final decision you make.

However, we believe people are looking to live in a good area, where they can feel settled, and at home. We believe that Huddersfield is a nice to place to live, and if you are thinking of making a move in 2022, we can help you.

Huddersfield offers town living and the countryside

In recent years, homebuyers have looked for a location that offers plenty of outdoor space. This is the case with Huddersfield. When you venture out of the town centre area, over 70% of Huddersfield is countryside.

This is ideal for those who want to get close to nature, and to feel more space around them.

Huddersfield is well connected

Another great reason to live in Huddersfield is the dependable range of transport options. With the M62, you can be in the heart of Leeds in around 30 minutes. You are also handily placed for the M1, which is a 20-minute drive from Huddersfield, ensuring you can connect with the whole country.

If you prefer to travel by train, you can reach by Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Scarborough, York and Hull by train from the heart of Hull. Some commutes to Leeds take less than 20 minutes if you get the direct train.

You also have bus options if you want to manage your budget effectively.

With so much to enjoy close to home, and knowing that getting around is easy, we genuinely believe Huddersfield has so much to offer.

How are house prices in Huddersfield?

At the end of 2021, according to Rightmove, house prices in Huddersfield are as follows’

While there have been many challenges in the housing market in the past couple of years, as you can see from the information above, house prices in Huddersfield have still risen.

There are many factors in this, but a critical component is that there is more demand for homes, than there are homes on the market.
