WARRINGTON has been named as one of the most affordable places to buy a high street home.

ukphonebook.com has taken Land Registry data, as well as other data points over the last decade, to reveal where the most affordable high street homes in the UK are.

As it happens, Warrington has been placed in the top 10 'most affordable' high street homes list.

According to the data, the average price for a home on Warrington's high street is £64,507.

The 10 'most affordable' high streets in the UK are as follows:

  1. Sunderland - £52,077
  2. Port Talbot - £53,874
  3. Ferndale- £55,514
  4. Mountain Ash - £60,267
  5. Crook (Howden) - £60,863

  10. Tonypandy - £67,347

Nathan Emerson, CEO of Propertymark said: “We know that the most expensive homes in England are in the south, so it is expected that this would follow suit when reporting on various other categories or credentials of properties.”

Over the past 10 years, the most popular property types for sale on high streets were, unsurprisingly, flats (35.4 per cent), followed by terrace properties (30.2 per cent). 

Detached homes made up 19.4 per cent of all property sales, and semi-detached made the remaining 14.9 per cent.

New builds only made up eight per cent of all property sales on high streets in the past 10 years.

Of these, the majority (91 per cent) were flats, reflecting the direction city centre housing is moving.

The Propertymark CEO added: "With populations growing, especially in the south, flats are more common and more affordable when looking to step onto the property ladder.

“It is unsurprising that newly built homes make up little of the total number of homes for sale given that UK Government is lacking in building an adequate provision for an ever-growing population.

“As well as this, new build homes are also being built on available land which is often slightly outside of towns and in turn, high streets.”
