Hull listed the most affordable city for first time buyers.

8 March 2018

Conveyancing, News

With house prices averaging out at £104,000.00; Hull has topped the list for being the most affordable place for first time buyers to live*.

The North East of England and Wales is the cheapest place in the UK to plant your roots with prices considerably less than cities South of England such as Colchester and Reading, due to the ever increasing house prices around the London area.

There is a clear divide between house prices in North and South. The survey by housing experts Zoopla say buyers in Hull can afford a deposit of over £15,000.00 on average and gives 16.5% benefit over buying a house compared to renting.

The Zoopla rankings for the most affordable cities to live in England and Wales to are:

1.Hull£104,376
2.Middlesbrough£107,041
3.Liverpool£122,137
4.Nottingham£133,631
5.Coventry£171,189

 

The Zoopla rankings for the least affordable cities for first-time buyers are:

1.London£518,178
2.Cambridge£438,109
3.Brighton£420,301
4.Colchester£255,221
5.Reading£325,354

 

With the City of Culture 2017 investment ending, the local Council made huge efforts in 2017 to keep Hull on the map by spending millions on the year-long event. City of Culture was just the beginning for Hull as the tourism count continues to rise with our fabulous attractions, such as The Deep aquarium, Queens Gardens, The Ferens Art Gallery and many more.

As 2018 gets into the full swing of things, Hull is becoming more of a thriving city. Trinity Market has recently been redesigned to attract new businesses to give Hull a go and has already seen some niche ideas being tried to the city centre.

In May 2017 after a long & painful road of recovery wich is still ongoing today. I finally plucked up the courage & decided to approach Willams Solicitors as I felt that there was something very wrong with the poor service i received in March 2015 from 1 1 1. Having made two calls over the weekend. Inspite of right leg being in immense pain & stone cold I was told that i had probably pulled a muscle nothing they could do for me & to visit my GP So after a weekend of struggling with pain i visited my GP to be rushed to Hospital with absent pulses in the right foot. On examination there was a blood clot on my right knee caused by Critical ischaemia nothing whatsoever to do with a pulled muscle. I was told i needed a thrombosis procedure to dissolve blood clot if this was unsuccessful they would have no other choice than to amputate below the right knee I was devastated Thanks to this amazing solicitors who advised me that they felt 1 1 1 had possibly been neglectful & would like to take my case on. With an outstanding Nick Gray becoming my solicitor & the amazing team of experts including Julian Matthews an absolutely brilliant barrister Vascular surgeons experts Professor sir Peter Bell & Professor Shearman who were also amazing in highlighting the Hospital were neglectful as well & need not of removed my leg & could have avoided amputation. All of the other team of experts who helped with this case as well were very good In fact I had a fantastic team i couldn't fault Williams solicitors at all. They proved all 3 defendants to be negligent & they got me an amazing settlement far more than I could ever dreamed of & in a short space of time A huge thanks to Nick Gray & his fantastic team inside & outside Williams I can start rebuilding my life knowing I can afford to have & get the very best in making life a lot easier. I can't have my leg back but I can now smile again knowing life won't be a struggle. I would strongly recommend this Solicitors to anybody who needs a professional honest caring & worth every penny Solicitor you will not be disappointed. Once again a massive Thank you to Nick Gray & all his team ❤ Sue Willoughby
