ARCHIVE: The New Forest is the least affordable National Park to live in

Latest research from Lloyds TSB* has found that people pay, on average, nearly an extra £90,000 to live within a National Park. And, the most expensive National Park is the New Forest, near to where Your Mortgage Expert is based.

In fact, the research found that the average house price in The New Forest National Park is 13.3 times more than the average annual earnings of those living there. With the average house costing £474,883 to live within the 150 square miles of forest that stretches between Salisbury and Southampton.

What this means for home buyers and home owners

Adam Nanson, Managing Director of Your Mortgage Expert in Salisbury comments:

“It is clear that the New Forest and other National Parks are very desirable places to live. And, as such demand a premium when it comes to owning property there. In fact, we find that Southampton and Salisbury and the areas in between are very sought after.

“With high premium tends to come high demand. And, as such, it is more important than ever that house buyers know their budget. This will help them look at appropriate properties that reflect their affordability.”
