how big is the 'average property' in the uk?
i am certain there are many clever people here who can answer me this question!
i've been surfing for 20 minutes now and i can't find the answer
but everyone is talking of the 'average property' - and i really want to know now!
cant really answer your question but i will say i live in dagenham essex and 70% of homes around here are two bedrooms homes some are three bedrooms, dont know if that helps you in anyway
The duncan clan gave a good clue.

Poor folks like myself have to make do with a four bed seperate double garage in its own grounds on a private estate (ie that is the norm for your managemnt type of people.) Having said that, my family home in Victoria is a single garage six bedroom, four living, one rumpus room MONSTER. but its single storey.
So my point is, it's hard to visualise the difference.
A bit like the bombers loosing really:)

There is a better house price web site that actually tells you what a house actually sold for since 20000
Up my street?
This site is quite good - http://www.home.co.uk/guides/house_prices_by_town.htm
You can view houses prices by median price by town/postcode and look at trends since 2000 for all house types ;)
i am just relieved to see that i am not the only one 'clue less' :D
it's just funny when you read the newspaper or on tv they keep mentioning '... price for the average house in the uk ... blalba...'
i can't see a 4bed detached being 'an average house' in the uk - i just thought there is a description as to the size and bedrooms and therelike...because all these trends don't tell me anything really if i don't know for what size it's ment to be! well, i guess the trend does as such but not the actual prices they all refer to - does that make sense? lol
but some very good links guys - thanks!!
I dunno Suz, the average price for a semi ex council house 3 beds up here ( not city though) is around the £130 000 bracket. some better than others can go a little either way..........? Stu ':D
