Choose to live in Hull

Yes, we are biased!  However, Hull has had some major regeneration since it was named “City of Culture” in 2017 and it has changed almost beyond recognition.  The fact that you can jump on a train from Kings Cross in London and alight in Hull within 3 hours, makes it perfect for the commuter and, of course, we also have the M62 or the A1 > A15 via our iconic Humber Bridge if travelling by road.  We are finding that Hull, as with most of the North of England, has become the investor hub of the UK and properties for sale do not hang around for long!

According to Zoopla, 2,566 properties were sold in Hull from March 2021 to the end of February 2022, and these were the average prices for the different types of property:

  • Detached houses: £281,924
  • Semi-detached homes: £164,892
  • Terraced houses: £117,765
  • Apartments: £82,798

Of course, there are some parts of Hull that are just incredibly sought-after and prices are on the higher side. In our area guide, we give you our team ‘favourites’ and name the best roads in each location, but you cannot beat some of the properties in the cultural quarter of the Fruit Market and the amazing Humber Street, which was named the ‘Best UK Street 2017’ by the Academy of Urbanism, where you would pay around £180,000 for a contemporary 2-bed apartment.

Hull City is pretty compact so you can get around pretty quickly, ideal for a day of sight-seeing or for getting quickly from A to B.  Hull is also blessed with rather a lot of places to grab a drink or a bite to eat, so has become quite the destination for weekends away, especially whilst foreign travel has been difficult during the COVID pandemic. You will see that a number of the Lime Property team have mentioned grabbing a drink, cocktails or bubbles from one of the many bars along Humber Street, so check out the team bios here: About Us.
