The Guardian recently announced a record high in average house prices across the UK.
Although these record average house prices are good for existing home owners, it’s sadly not that beneficial to those yet to get on the housing ladder. Something that was raised with the parliamentary candidates recenlty in Ramsbottom.
Last Sunday (Sunday the 20th of April) at the Pre-Election debate in Ramsbottom, one of the talking points was what the parties will do to help people get onto the property ladder, and part of the reason was that due to the shortage of houses in the UK, the prices have increased. Thus putting them out of the range of first time buyers.
Based on this recent information, I set out to graph the average house prices across the UK and compare them to the average house prices for the North West.
