  • Affordability – check this article from the UK government to find out (see what house for sale you can afford)

  • Location – if the house for sale is in the city centre rather than further out, this may be why it is more expensive than the market average.

  • Transports near the house for sale – Being able to use public transports is a huge plus for a house, especially in big cities. This will have an impact on the price as well.

  • Bedrooms – the more bedrooms there are in a house for sale, the more tenants a buy to let investors will be able to host, therefore, realistically the price will also increase.

  • EPC of the house for sale – today more than ever, the energy performance of properties for sale on the market should be one of the first things you check.

  • Wi-Fi speed – We recommend you check the internet plans available for the areas where you are considering to buy a house for sale

  • Are you a motorist? – If yes, filter out your searches and compare prices of houses for sale with parking availability. Remember, a car parking space can cost as much as £400 per month

  • Conditions of the house for sale – New builds and properties that were recently built usually need little to no repairs; instead, other houses for sale may require consistent or structural maintenance. These investments that can be both expensive and laborious to complete. Before making your offer for a house for sale you should always carefully assess this criteria.

What kind of demographics does the city of Armley have?

In the city of Armley, the demographics are unique and must be looked at by themself to make a conclusion about the area before buying a house. This is because the growth could be greatly different to the wider area of West Yorkshire for example.

These demographics for Armley may impact the price of a house, how this house grows over time and the profitability of a house if you are buying it for an investment so knowing the area is crucial for a landlord making a purchasing decision in the city of Armley in North East.

How much do people in Armley earn?

By and large, a higher household income in a population can have positive effects on the crime rate and the quality of space. This is due to the fact that higher earners tend to buy houses where there are better schools and more desirable amenities that impact the quality of life someone has.

In Armley, the average income is £36,000.00. Measuring this figure against the average household income for the UK of price34,000 should tell you if the city is higher or lower earning.

When buying a house, use this statistic with other factors when making a decision too like the crime rate or the social grade score of 15% to decide on what the demographics are like in the area.

How much green space is available to residents of Armley?

In the city of Armley, there are 10 acres of green space per 1000 residents.

The charity, ‘Fields in Trusts’ recommends a minimum of 6 acres of green space per 1000 people so it is easy to see where Armley is when seeing if green space availability is sufficient. This green space could be parks, nature reserves, public gardens or playing fields.

What’s crime like in Armley?

The crime rate of Armley must be looked at sceptically. The reason for this is that the crime rate can vary within a city greatly and the type of crime committed can also vary too.

For example, the area has a crime rate of 20400%, but another city may have a higher crime rate but not be deemed as dangerous due to lower level crime or minor offences being committed.

Either way, high crime rates are never a good sign so consider the rate against the UK average of 79.52 for every 1000 people as a benchmark.

Lower rates could mean things like home insurance is cheaper and you have to install fewer security measures throughout your house. Saving you money in the long run. So the statistic of crime rate (20400%) is both useful and is recommended to be compared to the average.
