What can £300,000 buy across Britain?
Are you looking for a new home right now and wondering how far your budget can stretch?
One of our favourite things to do is to head off on a property hunt across Britain to compare what you can buy in lots of different locations on a similar budget.
This week, we’ve taken a look at the different types of houses you can buy for £300,000 or less.
Why? Well, first of all, it’s less than the national asking price for a home right now, which, because the housing market is so busy, has reached a record high of £336,073. But you can still buy some pretty great houses with plenty of space and glorious gardens for a lot less than this.
Also, if you’re a first-time buyer in England or Northern Ireland, you won’t pay any stamp duty on homes priced at £300,000 or less. In Scotland and Wales, there is an equivalent tax for first-time buyers to pay, which works out at less than £5,000 for properties priced at this level.
