Some people rattle around in their home like two beans in a can whilst others are packed in like sardines in a tin. There is a formula, created by the Office for National Statistics which gives the occupancy rating of each home. This number shows whether a property has the ‘right’ number of rooms given the number of people living there. This shows the picture in our local housing market.

In some parts of the country, the split between a house and flat sales is very extreme while elsewhere there is more of a balance. It primarily comes down to the nature of the area and how densely populated it is. Rural, semi-rural and suburban areas are dominated by houses whereas urban districts are awash with flats. The chart shows the picture in our area.

The profile of car ownership is a great signal of the practical needs of residents in a local market. Most households have a car, but the number owned varies enormously based on the type of area. For example if you live in a one bedroom flat in a city you’re much less likely to own a car than if you live in a commuter suburb.

We wanted to take a look at how overall average prices of flats and houses have changed in the last eight months. This is quite a short time frame so there’s a fair bit of volatility from month to month but the story it tells is an interesting one nonetheless.
