UK | Houses in NPs fetch 20% higher selling prices
Newly released research from Nationwide Building Society suggests that house prices are likely to see a boost in areas surrounding new national parks created by the government.
The Society found that living in a national park attracts a 20% house price premium over an otherwise identical property elsewhere. This is higher (by 1%) than in August 2019 when the Society last produced its National Parks report. In cash terms, this equates to an extra £45,000 based on the average UK house price.
