Leeds is the largest city in West Yorkshire and one of the most populous cities across the whole of the north. It's no surprise that we list over 40 new homes developments in and around Leeds from both national and local home builders. Whether it's a city centre home for a first time buyer or a suburban family home, Leeds has it all. If you’re looking for Shared Ownership in Leeds, there are a range of homes available to you on this scheme as well. House prices in Leeds hover around £250,000, and with the average house price in England being over £300,000 it’s a very affordable city to live in. New homes are also famously more energy-efficient than second hand homes, therefore you will save thousands in bills.
There is a huge range of incentives and schemes available to prospective homebuyers in England to help get onto the property ladder. The First Homes Scheme, available only on new builds, aims to ensure buyers aren’t priced out of their hometown if they are in a more expensive location, such as a large city. The homes are offered at a 30-50% discount on the market price. Currently it’s only available on a few developments, it’s predicted to grow and be available across more homes in the future. The Shared Ownership scheme is also available, in which you buy a percentage share (10%-75%) of a property and pay rent on the remaining part - these are sold through non-for-profit housing associations. Many developers will have their own incentives, as well as offers available for Key Workers and people in the Armed Forces, so you should investigate different builders in the area you want to live to see what is being offered.
As with many of the cities in the north of England, Leeds was an important mill town during the Industrial Revolution. It was known for its flax and iron industries, as well as engineering and printing. The factories are no longer a feature of the city, but the ingenuity lives on. The city's modern economy, with technology, finance, and creative focus has its roots in the industrial hustle. Leeds also contributes massively to the UK economy as it's home to major banks, investment firms, and insurance companies, and consequently offers a multitude of available jobs across many of its sectors. There are positions in finance, technology, healthcare, education, and hospitality amongst many others. The financial sector opens doors for roles in banking, accounting, and consultancy. Professionals in the technology industry can thrive in software development, cybersecurity, and digital innovation. The creative industry offers opportunities in media production, graphic design, and marketing.
