Living in HullFinding a home

A unique combination of stylish new city centre apartments, classic Georgian townhouses, newly built estates and a variety of housing in the surrounding villages are all within easy reach, meaning that Hull and its surrounding area offer an extensive yet affordable range of high quality housing choices to suit any taste and budget.

Properties are considerably more affordable in comparison with other cities as demonstrated by the average price of a detached property at £157,143 - a more reasonable sum when compared against the national average for England and Wales which is estimated at £242,074. With housing prices significantly less than national average, first-time buyers can get their foot on the property ladder.

The historic, market town of Beverley, situated just a short drive away from Hull’s city centre, is at the top of the Royal Bank of Scotland's affordable affluent index, based on a report which searches the country for the most affluent places to live at the most reasonable prices. Hull, and the surrounding area, really is a hotspot for property investment - an offer which is quickly being recognised as an opportunity not to be missed.
