This month the ONS announced a rise in house prices this year (to September 2015) of 6.1% bringing the average house price in the UK to £286,000. However the figures vary by region. Wales and Scotland have both seen the smallest annual change of just 1.1%. In contrast, Northern Ireland has seen the biggest rise in the UK this year of 10.2% followed by the East at 8.4% and South East at 7.4%, closely followed by London at 7.2%.

The average property in London will now set you back £531,000 whereas with just £158,000 you could snap up the average house in the North East. With such a range of average house prices throughout the country, it can be tricky to work out the affordability of buying a property in a certain area. That’s where this handy gadget from the BBC can help.
