Moving To Slaithwaite In West Yorkshire Is A Great Idea

Mon 01 May 2023

The Great British Life website has an article called “Why You Should Move To Slaithwaite in West Yorkshire”, and Yorkshire Bylines features the location heavily in an article called “Norky’s ramblings: Slawit/Slaithwaite – the best place to live in the North?

Of course, the articles follow from the Sunday Times naming Slaithwaite as the best place to live in the North and North East in their 2022 location overview.

These platforms hail Slaithwate as a fantastic place to live, with the Sunday Times celebrating it as a “near perfect place to pursue post-pandemic happiness”. We fully agree, and as locals, we are delighted to see other people speak so highly of the local area.

With so many people speaking positively of the area, there is a need to turn to a skilled and experienced estate agent. ADM Residential is here to help you because we know and care about the local area and the Slaithwaite housing market.

How is the market faring in Slaithwaite?

According to Rightmove, house prices in Slaithwaite, as of the end of April 2023, are:

At the same time, Rightmove says this about the Huddersfield housing market:

“Properties in Huddersfield had an overall average price of £193,989 over the last year.

The majority of sales in Huddersfield during the last year were terraced properties, selling for an average price of £142,441. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £206,027, with detached properties fetching £347,424.

As you can see, the average price for property in Slaithwaite is higher than in the Huddersfield area in general, and the movement of prices is different too. Sold prices in Slaithwaite have increased by a more prominent level in the past 12 months, and the same is true of the increase since the 2020 level.

"We shopped around when we were choosing our estate agent. I wanted a company that understood how important the sale of our house was to us, a company that cared. It seemed we were 'business' to many of them and nothing more... Until I meet Alethea at ADM residential. I knew from the minute I met her we would use her company and I haven't been disappointed once. She's efficient, a fantastic communicator, caring and professional. We were in safe hands. I can't recommend ADM highly enough. It's like business as it's used to be- personal. Fantastic. Look no further for your estate agents - you've found them here."
