The most expensive houses in Leeds are still significantly cheaper (in terms of value for money) compared with many other parts of the United Kingdom – London, for instance. When you combine that with the fact that Leeds is the UK’s fastest growing city, Yorkshire’s cultural hub, and features beautiful natural surroundings, you begin to understand just why the city has become so desirable in recent times.
