A RESIDENT living on one of the UK's cheapest streets has said house prices there won't stay low forever.
Muhammad Choudary, 45, lives on Meadow Street, Lancashire, where properties have sold for around £25,000.
The taxi driver bought his family home three years ago.
He said pre-pandemic, buying in the area was a steal – but now some houses will go for more than double or triple the price.
Muhammad told LancsLive: "After coronavirus, [prices have] gone up.
"One house that maybe sold for £25,000 before the pandemic, the owner sold for £68,000."
