Burnley has been highlighted as the cheapest place to buy a residential property in the UK, with an average price tag of £117,320. The article in the Daily Mail noted that Burnley had held on to its title as the cheapest place to buy. According to the article, prices have increased in the town by 65% over the last 10 years, increasing £46,280 from its average price in 2013. The town has also been named as one of the cheapest places to rent in the UK in another recent survey. 

Burnley is enjoying somewhat of a moment in the spotlight following the success of the recent Netflix hit film, Bank of Dave. Coupled with Burnley’s recent re-entry to the Premier League, along with a number of development and redevelopment projects on the agenda, it seems that there are lots of reasons for buyers to look towards Burnley at the moment.
