The 10 postcode areas where properties takes the longest to sell in Leeds according to new data

New data has revealed in which areas of Leeds properties spend the most days on the property market before selling.

Professional house buying firm Property Solvers have analysed the Leeds housing market between February 2023 and February 2024 to work out exactly how long properties takes to sell in different postcodes.

The dataset analysed over 1,600 properties across all LS postcodes and revealed that it takes on average 18.75 weeks - or 131.25 days - to sell a property in Leeds.

The statistics track the moment a property is listed on UK property portals to the point it's market as officially sold at the HM Land Registry.

Ruban Selvanayagam of Property Solvers commented on the data: “Whilst we’re starting to see some noticeable improvements into 2024, the continued pressures on the mortgage sector and buyers' ability to secure the right kind of finance has resulted in delays with sales completing.

"Combined with the recognised ‘snail pace’ nature of the conveyancing process, it’s likely that these trends are likely to remain for some time.”
