The best areas of Preston to purchase property in 2021/2022
Posted on 28th September 2021
A guide to Preston's property market, and where to buy a property in Preston, from our local conveyancing solicitors in Preston.
In recent years, Preston’s property market has developed and diversified a huge amount. Since achieving its city status in 2002, Preston has also recently been voted the most improved city in the UK, and the city and its surrounding areas have now reached a population of around 420,000.
With great motorway access to the M61, M6, M65, and M55, and public transport links to the breathtaking Lake District, and the busy cities of Manchester and Liverpool, Preston really is at the heart of the North-West, and its impressive property market.
So, if you’re considering a move to the Preston area, or are looking to move within Preston to another property type or area of the city, then this local Preston guide is for you. Our conveyancing solicitors in Preston know the city like the back of our hand, and in this post will run through the best areas of Preston to buy property in 2021/2022.
Affordable house prices in Preston:
One of the most attractive things about Preston for first-time property buyers, property investors, or people looking to get more for their money, are the house prices at some of the lowest values in the UK.
Obviously, the Preston property prices compared to the national average vary between property types depending on demand, with our conveyancing solicitors in Preston noting that semi-detached three-bedroom houses within walking distance of schools and other amenities tend to be in most demand in the Preston area.
Popular areas in Preston for affordable 3 bedroom houses:
As previously mentioned, reasonably priced 3 bedroom houses that are nearby to good schools and amenities are arguably the most sought after property types in the Preston area. If you are looking for an affordable property with two or three bedrooms, our conveyancing solicitors in Preston would recommend the following areas:
Fulwood- with property priced ranging from low to mid-range, depending on proximity to the city centre, our property solicitors in Preston have assisted with a number of reasonably priced property purchases for clients buying 2 or 3 bedroom semi-detached and terraced houses in the Fulwood area. You can definitely get more for your money toward the city side of Fulwood, but with good local schools and shops it can be a great place for young families.
Penwortham- located in the South Preston area, and classed as a separate small town to Preston city, Penwortham has an impressive range of mid-range priced properties, both semi-detached and detached new developments. Our conveyancing solicitors in Preston have worked with a range of clients purchasing property in Penwortham, the majority of whom are families, commuters, or both, with the town having great motorway access.
Larger, up-market property areas in Preston:
With the property market in Preston being so diverse, and new developments regularly being built in the area, our conveyancing solicitors in Preston would tell any of our clients that the area is not short of larger, more up-market properties, many of which are extremely modern. Once again, areas of Fulwood are notable in these property types, typically being located further out of the city than the more affordable housing in Fulwood.
Another attractive area is the village of Broughton towards the North of Preston, with a small population of under 2000. The village hosts a close-knit, community feel, and an impressive number of walking and bike trails, which give the feel that you’re much further out from the hustle and bustle of the city than you actually are. Just a stone throw from our office in the centre of Garstang, MG Legal’s conveyancing solicitors are experts on the Broughton property market, and have close working relationships with all of the estate agents in the local area.
Bungalows in Preston:
Bungalows are actually one of the most sought after property types in the Preston area, with local estate agents predicting them to have the largest price increase in the next 10 years. So, if you’re looking for your dream bungalow in the Preston area, our conveyancing solicitors in Preston would recommend you put an offer in sooner than later.
Gone are the days that bungalows were solely for older people, and gone are the stereotypes of them being outdated and run-down. Unfortunately, it would be difficult for our conveyancing solicitors in Preston to offer a particular area for affordable bungalows for sale in the Preston area, as they tend to be dotted around the city suburbs.
There are a number of attractive bungalows in Fulwood, Penwortham, Ashton, and in the small village of Freckleton near Lytham, if you like the idea of being closer to the coast.
If you are hoping to find your dream bungalow in the Preston area, our conveyancing solicitors in Preston would advise you to act as fast as possible throughout the process. Try not to waste too much time before making an offer, and make sure to seek reliable legal representation from a conveyancing solicitor in Preston as soon as possible, in order to prevent any delays that could see the property purchase fall through.
