Properties for Sale and Rent in York
The UK remains a fantastic location for investors, due to the combination of a stable economy and continued and increasing demand for property. Though the market remains buoyant and full of opportunity across many regions, some cities are clear standouts and York has firmly earned such a title.
The city has all the tools available to become an economic hub on a national scale and beyond. The City of York council’s successful Enterprise Zone bid was announced in the Autumn Statement, as George Osborne listed York Central as one of the 26 new zones nationwide. York, already with exceptional rail links and connectivity to major cities such as London, Manchester and Edinburgh, could see the Enterprise Zone unlock investment in the hundreds of millions for the city.
Renowned as a place of beauty and historical reverence, York boasts a quality of life and scenic nature that has led it to the third fastest growing population in the UK. Not only has the scenery and value led to increasing demand, but as an English heritage city, York has a restricted construction pipeline-prolonging new builds or even scuppering developments before they begin.
Only a two-hour train journey from London, York is a feasible destination for part-time commuters. It isn’t only the cost effective element of the city that is attracting investors and tenants away from the capital, but the cultural and educational qualities the city offers. The Jorvik Viking Centre museum attracts some of York’s 7 million annual visitors, along with the towering splendour of York Minster. With an exceptionally slow construction pipeline and limited available space for further developments, York property is well placed to hold its value and, with supply struggling to keep up with demand for the foreseeable future.
