Worcestershire is a non-metropolitan county located in the West Midlands area of central England. Worcestershire was established in antiquity; the county remains a staple in regards to fostering England's rich history and culture.
Worcestershire County is one of the smaller counties in regards to population and total area–the county contains roughly 557,000 people and is only 1,740 kilometers in total area. The northern part of Worcestershire is the starting point for the urban sprawl that was sparked through an industrial revolution in the West Midlands. The remaining south region of the county mostly consists of sprawling rural land.
As a result of the different landscapes, a prospective buyer will come across many different Worcester homes for sale. The most popular forms of property in Worcestershire are flats or small homes that were recently built. As a result of the county's antique status and traditional feel there isn't a significant real estate market per say.
The majority of Worcester homes for sale are located near the industrial zones of the county. These Worcestershire properties are typically flats, small apartments, or terraced condos. The average Worcestershire property in this area sells for roughly 120,000 Euros–this price combines both multiple bedroom apartments and the smaller flats.
In contrast, the rural areas or more sparsely populated regions do not have many Worcester homes for sale. Typically the dwellings in these regions are family-owned and stay in the same lineage for generations. The exchange of homes is so rare in the less-densely populated areas of Worcestershire county that very few real estate agents cover the area.
