UK property sale data for September 2015

It’s the end of the month so it’s time to upload the latest Land Registry property data to my website. The data crunching is still in progress but I’m off on holiday for a few days so can’t wait for it to complete before posting here (calculating all the various averages can take quite some time). Predictably enough, the data shows house prices continuing their upward march.

One sale this month caught my eye. Flat 4, 19 Terrapin Road was the first flat we bought, back in 1999. It’s just changed hands again, for a cool £530,000. So in 16 years, the price has increased over fivefold… Just one example of the insanity of the London housing market.
