Danny Luke from Quick Move Now commented: “There has been much in the news over the last year about the shortage of properties coming to the market. As a result of that shortage, properties that do become available are greatly in demand and sell quickly. The property market in Yorkshire is exceptionally strong, with both Middlesbrough and Bradford featuring in the top ten list. 

“Properties in Middlesbrough typically spend just 38 days on the market, whilst those in Bradford sit on the market just a day longer. If you’re in either Bradford or Middlesbrough and have a property that you’re considering selling, now is a great time to do it.”
