  • Cheapest Areas in UK for property prices

    Wondering if a website exists that can show where the cheapest property prices are in the UK?

    What are you actually after, just information, possible rental properties?

    North are where the cheapest houses are at in general, alot of its down to the specific area though - you'll find areas with Universities local are cheap, because of the student lets.

      Do you want to buy or let?
      Best to search on the top property portals, you should get a good idea of the cheapest places to rent/buy

        I can't think of any reason why someone would buy property at "cheapest" prices - not least, because price is local-dependent and therefore relative.

        The "cheapest" average prices are in Scotland, but that's probably because of the huge council estates sprawling out from Glasgow and pocketing the rest of Scotland.

          Depends on what you are looking for and a rough idea of area, the UK covers a lot of different counties etc.
          Certain areas in the northwest are cheap...Depends on type of house/accomodation, size etc and whether you wish to live in a council area or private.
          example being ; a three bed terrace on my town (chorley) range from 75,000 - 120,000 approx......but just down the road in wigan/leigh area the same sort of house could be 55,000 - 75,000.
          You would have to be more specific. And look at reasons why an area is cheaper too!

            There are sites that give you the actual sales figures - taken from land registry so very accurate - for properties in their actual post code areas if that would be of any help?

                        As has been said before, many sites offer house price data... I tend to use right move. This will do it by postcode or part postcode. UK's number one property website for properties for sale and to rent

                        I have noticed that the data is the same for most sites. (i.e. it seems the land registry only release the data at specific times and all the sites seem to have the same data at the same time)

                          I've found a website , you can win £250,000 to buy a house. Might be worth a try, there is no way I'll get a 25% deposit together which is what the bank wants.

                            Buying a property low then fixing it and selling higher is the right way to go in my opinion. look for those properties nearing foreclosure in reasonably priced locations.

                              houses cheapest in job loss zones?

                              At the age of 50, I quit my dayjob, and in order to free up the maximum amount of capital I could, I sold my house in south Warwickshire and looked all over England and Wales to find where the cheapest houses were. At the time, the cheapest two areas were ex-mining areas of the north-east Midlands (eg, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire) and south Wales.

                              That was a decade ago. I guess that areas of greatest recent job losses will always be among the ones with lowest price houses.
