Measuring commuting distance might seem a little obscure but it actually offers a particularly good insight into the character of any local housing market. For example, commuter towns tend to really come alive at the weekends but are quieter in the week. Areas where most people work locally will have a stronger community feel day-to-day.
It won’t come as any massive shock that houses are generally worth more than flats in our area. However, when it comes to the movements over time, these two broad types of property do not always behave similarly. Here we see how flats and houses have varied in price.
The property market fluctuates on a seasonal basis, and this is particularly the case for sales rates. This chart shows how the market has changed over the course of the last few months. The most recent periods are estimates based on the previous year’s pattern.
As you’re no doubt aware, there’s a lot of doom and gloom surrounding the national property market at the moment. For example the Nationwide index showed that in June, annual house price growth had slowed to a five-year low. Our area hasn’t been immune; in the first quarter of 2018, there were 18.7 per cent fewer sales than the same period in the previous year.
In The Heatons, one bedrooms apartments certainly aren’t in short supply however, neither is the demand for them. Over the years we have seen high demand for these properties which has driven the monthly rental up making them great BTL opportunities for landlords/first time investors.
