With real landmarks like Salisbury Cathedral which attracts as many as 5,000 people for its Advent procession in December, you get a feeling of the sense of community in the area. This is even more impressive when you consider Salisbury has a population of less than 50,000 people, many of whom are middle class or employed, for this reason properties are neither cheap nor overpriced. A budget 1 bedroom flat can cost as much as £129,000 and a good 3 bedroom semi-detached property as little as £200,000, so there are not vast differences between prices of properties with different bedroom sizes but the lowest priced properties are seldom cheaply priced. There are more flats and terraced properties for sale than other types of properties available on the market but the rental sector is slightly different with fairly small numbers of properties to rent across the board.
Though there are slightly more flats and terraced properties available, this overall rental scarcity has created a price rise with good 4 to 5 bedroom detached houses costing between £1250 - £1500, and budget 1 bedroom flats as high as £525 pcm.
