Houses for sale in Hereford may attract young female buyers

Houses for sale in Hereford may attract young female buyers

Women buying houses for sale in Hereford are seven years younger than men, on average, according to new research.

British female home buyers tend to be a year younger than their male counterparts in the UK, but Herefordshire appears to buck the trend, the Post Office findings show.

Figures from the Land Registry show that the average price of property in Herefordshire in April stood at £173,310.

However, women can get their hands on a flat or maisonette in the county for around £87,000 - nearly half the price of a house.

This certainly compares favourably to the price of houses for sale in Birmingham and Bristol nearby.

The Post Office research indicated that women are much more likely to view purchasing a property as a financial investment compared to men.

Property for sale in Herefordshire has steadily risen over the last decade.

The financial crisis of 2008 saw the average value of homes fall by more than £30,000, but prices have steadily recovered since April 2009.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800599339-ADNFCR
