What is a social grade score and how does this relate to Alderton?
The social grade of a city is useful when searching for a house for sale because it tells you what kind of jobs people have in the area. For example, there could be a lot of skilled manual workers or there could be a lot of pensioners and people on benefits.

A higher number of degrees will increase the potential for people to earn and hence the buying power of the population. This will also push up the price of houses in the area.
Nonetheless, making accurate estimates for the appreciation of homes must be done with other pieces of data in mind such as the rental yields or perhaps the crime rate of the area to name some examples.

In Alderton, for every 1000 people, there is currently a crime rate of 6100%. This can be compared to the national average of 79.52 for every 1000 people.
Low crime rates are desirable for your safety as a homeowner. Even if you don’t tend to leave the house too often and tend to not mind living in a slightly more dangerous area. Things like burglaries are always a possibility which could harm your ability to pay for home insurance and also may force you to install additional security in your home that can cost you further.
Having said this, you can look at the crime rate on a deeper level to find out what the threats are exactly. It could be the case that a proportion of these crimes (6100% for every 1000 people) come from things like anti-social behaviour rather than more serious crimes like violence and sexual offences.
If this is the case you may be more willing to look over a high crime rate within the areas you’re looking to buy a home.
