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’

Properties in Huddersfield had an overall average price of £203,633 over the last year.

The majority of sales in Huddersfield during the last year were terraced properties, selling for an average price of £136,259. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £183,831, with detached properties fetching £360,987.

Overall, sold prices in Huddersfield over the last year were 13% up on the previous year and 20% up on the 2018 peak of £169,242.”

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 is high demand for property in Huddersfield

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.

Therefore, if you are considering selling your Huddersfield home, we can help.

We speak regularly with keen buyers looking for property in and around Huddersfield. If you want to connect with these buyers in an effective manner, choose an agent who knows the local market, and who has considerable experience in selling homes in and around Huddersfield.

No matter what you are looking to achieve in 2022, we look froward to assisting you as best we can, and we hope you have a brilliant year.

"When Alethea came to value the house straight away and the property was on the market within days. The process was well explained, the staff were friendly and communication was great. The house was sold in one month. The fee was a fixed fee which we were more than happy with and there were no unexpected add on's. Highly Recommended!"
