I'm in the process of importing the latest house price data to the website. House prices are continuing to fall and sales continue to look on the low side. I guess this will continue until interest rates start to fall

Tuesday, March 5, 2024

I've uploaded the latest house price data from the Land Registry to the website. Prices continue to slide. If they fall again next month, it will be the longest period of sustained falls since 2012. Sales are trickier to evaluate since it can take some time for all the data to come in but they still look on the low side.

I've imported the latest postcode data from the ONS to the website. I had some issues with parishes, the postcodes reference new parish codes but the parish name lookups still use the old codes, so I've had to manually fix up the data, which I may well have messed up. If you notice any issues with parishes or anywhere else in the postcode data, let me know

The website is churning through the latest data from the Land Registry and the top line numbers are now online. Sales volumes still look low and the the fall in prices continues. Maybe there'll be another Stamp Duty holiday to turn the numbers around in time for an election.

I've also recently updated the average income data by MSOA area. The data is released rather slowly by the ONS, so we are only now able to get it for 2020. Perhaps unsurprisingly, pretty much all the areas with the highest incomes are in London and the South East of England. I could highlight some of the areas at the top of the list, but the confidence intervals are so large I suspect this may not be that informative. If you want to see the original data, you can download it directly from the ONS.

I've updated the site to include details of another level of administrative area, county electoral divisions. For example - Cambridgeshire postcodes

You can grab the data as CSV, KML, GeoJSON and Shape files. Let me know if you hit any problems.

In unrelated news, I've adjusted the blog subscription so you can subscribe just for blog posts about website updates or for all updates, since I occasionally rant about random subjects that most subscribers probably aren't interested in. If you've signed up already, you will only receive notifications about website updates. If you want to sign up for everything, currently you'll need to unsubscribe and sign up again.

I've uploaded the latest Land Registry website data to the website. Perhaps unsurprisingly, house prices are now falling and sales volumes don't look very healthy

I've added usage data for GB stations for the April 2022 to March 2023 time period. Whilst most stations still haven't returned to their pre-pandemic usage, the Elizabeth line appears to have been a huge success, with many of the stations along it achieving record numbers of passengers. The most used station is no longer London Waterloo, which has held the record for every year apart from 2021, but rather London Liverpool Street.

I've also updated the station stats page so you can explore the historic usage data

I've uploaded the latest ONS postcode data. There is an issue with ITL codes in the Northamptonshire area which I can't currently resolve but I will keep an eye out for updated data from the ONS. If you see any other problems, let me know

The server is currently churning through the latest house price data from the Land Registry. The trend continues, the number of sales is falling and prices are dropping with the annual percentage change likely to turn negative next month. The rise in interest rates finally seems to be having an effect.

I've uploaded the latest house price data for England and Wales to the website

Prices are heading down but the annual change remains in positive territory.

Sunday, October 1, 2023

I've updated the Land Registry data on the website. The annual change is still in positive territory but prices look to be starting to head downwards. Taking into account inflation and wage increases, house prices are falling, but given the increases in mortgage costs, affordability is probably not

Another month goes by and the world may be on fire but house prices keep going up

Based on some useful feedback some time ago (thanks Denis!), I've added a new feature to the segment explorer to help you grab more KOMs or QOMs. You can now view and filter on the upcoming wind direction for the area you are viewing. I don't really chase KOMs these days (too old and slow) so I can't vouch for its usefulness, but I think it could be quite useful for those that do

I've uploaded the latest Land Registry data for England and Wales to the website. House prices keep going up and seem remarkably resilient given the increase in mortgage costs
