Twenty Twenty Vision - Delving into Data 38: Most expensive areas to rent & buy

Posted by TwentyCi September 27, 2018

London Earl's Court

After coming across a property listing for a house in Surrey going for a whopping price tag of £30M, we decided to investigate where the highest average price of properties to buy and rent were in the UK. Unsurprisingly, many were to be found in London but a few, as we've highlighted below, were further afield.

Postcode Areas in the top 10 of the average sale prices were...

  • West London (£1,368,290)
  • South West London (£1,209,924)
  • North West London (£1,175,249)
  • Eastern Central London (£1,143,948)
  • West Central London (£1,019,845)
  • Jersey (£970,537)
  • North London (£804,618)
  • Kingston Upon Thames (£702,596)
  • Slough (£673,152)
  • Twickenham (£617,148)

Drilling down deeper, the top 10 sales prices for postcode districts feature many of London's most popular areas: Buckingham Gate (£5,699,033), Knightsbridge (£5,095,290) Guildhall (£5,000,000), Belgravia (£4,792,854), Portland Street (£4,787,500), Mayfair North (£4,623,025), Monument (£4,446,983), Mayfair South (£4,416,051), Whitehall (£4,374,500) and Kensington (£3,201,227). 

Postcode Areas in the top 10 of the average rental prices were...

  • Jersey (£2,488 PCM)
  • Kingston Upon Thames (£2,041 PCM)
  • South West London (£1,840 PCM)
  • Slough (£1,691 PCM)
  • Twickenham (£1,671 PCM)
  • Guildford (£1,614 PCM)
  • North West London (£1,593 PCM)
  • West London (£1,467 PCM)
  • Harrow (£1,466 PCM)
  • Bromley (£1,462 PCM)

Finally, we've looked at which postcode districts for average rental price appear in the top 10: Buckingham Gate (£6,766 PCM), Virginia Water (£5,577 PCM), Petworth (£5,363 PCM), Knightsbridge (£4,576 PCM), Ham (£4,089 PCM), Cobham (£3,934 PCM), New Oxford Street (£3,766 PCM), Barnes (£3,730 PCM), Ascot (£3,670 PCM) and Mayfair North (£3,640 PCM).
