House prices in Sheffield rose yet again in the year ending in March 2023.
The average price paid for a home in the city now stands at £200,000, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics published in September - up from £197,000 the previous year and £125,000 in the year ending in March 2013.
There are now just 14 neighbourhoods out of a total of 70 across Sheffield where the average home will cost you less than £140,000.
