Where Are The Bargains In Cheshire Property Market?

With close to one million people living in Cheshire, there is undoubtedly a lot of people who are happy with their living arrangements in the county. However, it is important to note that there are many different areas of Cheshire and no matter what your budget is, you will find that there is an option that is more in line with what you are willing or able to spend.

When you are looking at homes in the Cheshire property market, it is important to know that terms like bargains or value for money are very subjective. A great deal for one person or family may be an expensive gamble for someone else, so this is why it is essential that people consider their own needs and circumstances before committing to a move.


A low price doesn’t always mean value for money

Another thing that is also important to be remember is that low cost doesn’t always mean good value for money or that a bargain is to be found. There are some very affordable options in Cheshire, with the average prices for towns and villages varying by a great deal, but just because you can afford an area doesn’t mean that you should be looking to invest in an area without undertaking research of what is on offer.

The county town in Cheshire is Chester and according to figures provided by Zoopla [1]in December of 2018, the average price paid for property in the past 12 months stands at £240,831. This is slightly higher than the average price paid across Cheshire, which stands at £228,115. The largest town in Cheshire is Warrington and the average price paid for property in this part of the county stands at £192,748. This is coming close to £40,000 cheaper than the average price paid across the country so from that viewpoint, it could be argued that you should be able to find some bargains in Warrington.


Alderley Edge is an expensive area of Cheshire

Of course, by nature of this town being the largest town in the area, it is inevitable that there will be prosperous areas and some areas that are not at their best at the moment. No one is saying that you need to look at areas like Alderley Edge, where the average price is listed at more than £550,000 or Knutsford with an average price in excess of £410,000 but the quality of life on offer in these areas may be more appealing or attractive to you and your family.

This is why it is vital that you know what your budget is and what you can afford to pay when looking for property. This should be the starting point when looking for property in Cheshire and once you have a budget in mind, you should find it is possible to find something that gives you a good return on your investment.
