    The duncan clan gave a good clue.

    In the UK the "average propety" as used in the polls etc is called a two up two down which is semi detached. Its bigger than a spanish quad for example.

    However, the norm is leaning to what they started calling back in the 90's as an "Executive Home" meaning a four bed detached with single attached garage.

    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:)

    Perhaps use the term "Median house price /value" that should get good result.

    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 :err: - 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 must admit that I really don't trust some of the statistics and median house prices quoted.

    The median prices and suburb guides/prices are shown in the paper here every few months.

     

    Some stats are totally wrong as there are far too few houses sold in certain suburbs.

    Our suburb of Onkaparinga Hills has few sales and the median price varies wildly.

    I look for the busier suburbs such as Morphett Vale to give me an idea.

    I just had a quick check

    Doesn't go by average prices, (once you register) it goes by actual price at the last sale.

    Which means, as you have probably already guessed, you can check what price houses are going for in a particular area.

     

    Where I live there are no houses that have less than four bedrooms, so working out an average price is much easier than were there are a mix of residential types.
