Pudsey named as a 'up-and-coming' property hotspot for second time this year
Pudsey has been named as a property hotspot for the second time this year.
A study by property portal Boomin ranked the market town as the 14th most up-and-coming property hotspot in the whole of the UK.
It was named the most sought after in Yorkshire.
Back in February of this year, Pudsey was named in the top 10 property hotspots in the UK by Rightmove.
Keighley and Pudsey ranked joint fourth in the list, with property prices soaring by 11 per cent in the year from February 2020 to February 2021.
Also named on the Boomin list was Headingley, which came in at number 20.
Michael Bruce, Group CEO and Founder of Boomin commented: “At Boomin, we want to empower our customers to ‘get there first’ and find what really is their dream home.
"A huge aspect of this is finding the right area to live in before things get too competitive, so we wanted to go beyond just house price increases as an indicator of how ‘sought after’ an area is, and look at what the modern home owner really wants.
"Taking into account everything from proximity to schools and crime rates, to how many restaurant options there are in the area, has allowed us to shine a light on the places people might not have been considering, but could be just what they’re looking for".
