At Property Price Advice, you can get accurate sold price data for any property sale in England and Wales (sometimes in Scotland as well). That way, you can get a clear picture of the market, plan your budget correctly, and make an informed purchasing decision.

How can you find property prices for your area?

Finding house prices for your area is more straightforward than you may think. With the right tool like our free UK house prices checker in your corner, you can find residential and commercial house prices in any area within seconds.

All you need to do is take the following steps:

UK property prices and Land Registry information

According to the UK House Price Index, the average property price in the UK was £254,624 in May 2021. In April 2021, the UK house prices were 0.9% lower. They have increased by 10% since 2020, but they seem to be on a downward trend since relatively recently.

At Property Price Advice, we use only the latest market data and up-to-date HM Land Registry information, so you can rest assured that you’ll always get accurate information here.

Where does sold house price data come from?

The UK data on sold house prices comes from the HM Land Registry, Registers of Scotland, and Land and Property Services Northern Ireland.

Together with the Office for National Statistics, these departments operate the UK House Price Index (HPI), which shares the latest data on house prices and estimates of all the periodical changes in the prices. 

Unfortunately, we don’t provide sold house prices in Northern Ireland at the moment, while we show an occasional house sale in Scotland. Most of our sold house prices are for properties in England and Wales.

House prices UK postcode

Using a particular UK postcode is the fastest way to search for real estate listings and determine their price estimates or sold prices.

There are thousands of UK postcodes, consisting of a postcode area, district, sector, and unit. You don’t need to enter a full postcode to get the information you need, as only the first group (the outward code) will do the trick.

Take London, for example. For East London, the postcodes are in the E area, while they’re in the W area for West London. N is for North London, while S isn’t for South London, but rather for Sheffield. NW is for North West London, SW for South West London, and SE for South East London.

Sold house prices in my street

If you want to know how much certain houses in your street sold for, all you need to do is type in the street address in any property price checker’s appropriate box.

At Property Price Advice, you can narrow down the search radius by selecting the following options:

  • Within 1/4 mile
  • Within 1/2 mile
  • Within 1 mile
  • This area only
