Value hotspots

  • The number of first-time buyers in 2023 fell by 21% compared with the year earlier, to 293,339. This would be due in part to rising affordability pressures.

  • Focussing on an area can highlight local value hotspots. The BD1 postcode in Bradford offers an average property price of £69,939. This is lower than the local average and significantly less than the national average of £358,457 (England) and £225,025 (Wales). In these locations, properties are priced much lower than in other parts of the UK, making it easier for first-time buyers to get on the property ladder.

  • Over half of the 20 most affordable locations were in the North East of England, four in the North West, three in Yorkshire and the Humber and two in Wales.
