Current Statistics ►

Estimates recently published in the ONS’ survey on ‘Families and Households: 2017’ show that the number of families in the UK have increased by 8.1% over the last ten years to 18,997,000.

Married couples and those living in civil partnerships are the most dominant group, with civil partnerships driving the growth of this group, increasing by 66.7% (versus 4.8% for married couples) particularly at younger age groups.

14 million dependent children are currently estimated to be living in families in the UK. It is, however, families with no children or no dependent children that were more common. Some 6.6 million (40%) 15-34 year olds live with their parents.

The ONS suggests that the larger numbers of young adults tending to stay at home for longer may be explained by staying in education and training for longer, formalising relationships and having children at older ages, and increased costs in renting or buying a home.

Natalie took part in the Cancer Research Race for Life Pretty Muddy on Sunday 3rd September. It was "pretty muddy" due to the Cornish Autumn weather, but a brilliant time was had by all and Natalie raised a fantastic total of £183.00 for Cancer Research!

House prices in the West Midlands

Property Prices The Guild 22nd May 2017


Today, we look at the West Midlands region in our series of property spotlights touching on the average house prices, number of sales and the size of the market around the country.

The figures use Land Registry House Price Index data which gives an indication of the region’s housing markets. There is not a single measure which provides a complete picture the UK market, but below are 20 areas with statistics on the total value of all property transactions in the past year.




Market snapshot:

  • The district with the largest market is Birmingham which saw £2.1bn worth of transactions in the year to January 2017.
  • This was followed by Shropshire with £923m worth of sales over the same period.
  • The district with the highest overall average house price was Stratford-upn-Avon where prices sit at £305,900, which is 40% above the national average.
  • The market with the highest number of transactions was Birmingham with 12,477 sales occurring during the period.
