Yorkshire and the Humber

That means there is an abundance of properties available to buy across the expanse, at varying prices. Singles, couples and families can find their ideal home there.

Property in Yorkshire and the Humber is generally cheaper than in the Home Counties, yet dearer than in the North East and West. Small flats, spacious luxury apartments, smart townhouses, semis and large, detached family homes with gravel drives and extensive gardens are all available to buy.
