Warwickshire is a non-metropolitan county in the West Midlands area of England. The county is landlocked, possesses a population of just 530,000 people, and a total area of only 1,975 kilometers. The majority of the 530,000 residents live in the northern and central part of the county.
The remaining areas are referred to as market towns; this term is similar to a factory town or industry-driven area of the United States. The southern area of Warwickshire is largely rural, sparely populated, and is mostly comprised of small towns. As a result of the county's geographical and societal breakdown, the majority of Warwickshire property is purchased and sold in the northern and central regions of the county.
Although the majority of residents live in the central and northern regions of the area, Warwickshire County does not possess any major cities. The majority of the county is comprised of undulating countryside and tiny villages. The largest towns or communities in Warwickshire are Nuneaton, which has a population of 77,500, Rugby, which has a population just over 62,000, and Leamington Spa, where just 45,300 reside.
Even following a horrible economic recession Warwickshire property values have remained somewhat intact. Although many of the aforementioned communities are filled with small apartments, cottages or flats, there are also larger homes that sell for close to 1 million Euros. The typical Warwickshire property, to reflect the county's non-metropolitan status will be relatively cheap and small however.
