But some areas are likelier to attract bigger price rises than others in 2021, as their streets become increasingly attractive and demand pushes up the value of houses.
We spoke to ELR – Sheffield’s oldest independent estate agency – to find out which city suburbs buyers are likely to focus on in the months to come.
1. Nether Edge
"That whole area around Chippinghouse Road and Steade Road was always a nice area, but now because of all those independent pubs, bars and cafés - Amici & Bici, The Broadfield - I've seen a massive surge in interest this year," says James Ross, ELR sales director.

"We sold six houses on South View Crescent this year, which is three bed terrace land," James Ross continues. "They were always well under £200,000. We sold all six for between £195,000 and £250,000. It's shot up." Photo: Dean Atkins
3. Sharrow Vale
"Everyone loves Sharrow Vale because of all the independent shops," says Tim Venn, ELR director and valuer. A recent listing by the firm described Sharrow Vale - which, as well as having its own charms, is appealingly close to all that Ecclesall Road has to offer - as a 'fashionable cosmopolitan area'.

Earlier this year Condé Nast Traveller magazine selected Sharrow Vale as one of the country’s ‘coolest neighbourhoods’, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Ancoats in Manchester and Aigburth in Liverpool. The bar and restaurant Tonco, at Dyson Place, is one of Tim Venn's recommendations. Photo: Chris Etchells
