Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds named among most desirable places to live in UK - full top 10 list
The UK Property Index rates towns, boroughs and cities in key categories to determine an overall ‘desirability score’.
We already knew it, but a new report has confirmed it: Liverpool is one of the most desirable places to live in the UK.
Created on behalf of Swift Direct Blinds, the index analysed factors such as average property price per local authority and how this has changed over time, the areas with the fewest number of properties for sale, and where people are looking to buy properties the most.
High property prices and fewer properties being available on the market can indicate that people are buying properties in the area at a quicker rate and residents are happy where they live and don’t want to move.
Liverpool emerged with a desirability score of 6.02 out of 10 - ranking it in the top ten for the country. Glasgow came in at number one with a score of 8.01. The London boroughs were excluded from the national research and were ranked separately.
The full top ten are listed below.
