House prices in Bristol

Bristol has become an increasingly popular place to live among younger generations, which has contributed to the strength of the local property market. This is a positive thing for long-term investment, as well as for those looking to lay down their roots in the area. Prices are above the South West average and have seen some excellent growth in recent years. Read on as we take a closer look at Bristol house prices by area to help you zone in on which part of the city you’re interested in.

Where to buy in Bristol

As both a major city and a ceremonial county, Bristol covers some 40 square miles. There are lots of different suburbs and neighbourhoods to choose between, as well as central locations, which cater for a wide variety of budgets. Like with most major cities, you can find everything from exclusive areas with expensive properties that need no work doing to affordable spots and up-and-coming neighbourhoods where you can make your budget work harder by purchasing a fixer-upper.

Emersons Green

Lying on the north-eastern outskirts of the city around six miles from the centre, Emersons Green falls into the category of up-and-coming Bristol suburbs. Ideal for those looking for a little more space along with excellent access to both the surrounding countryside and the M4 motorway, keep an eye out for our exciting new Lyde View development in this area.
