    A guide from the UK government

  • House Location – The borough and region of the UK you want to invest in is an important factor to consider when looking for a home for sale.
  • Transport – Commuting can be a waste of time. Minimise it by checking how long it will take from the house for sale you’re interested in, to your office before considering buying
  • Number of bedrooms – The number of bedrooms goes hand in hand with the house for sale price. If you are buying for the long period try to think if you might need an extra bedroom
  • Energy performance of the house for sale – The difference between an EPC rating of A and an EPC rating of G can impact your monthly utility bills, consider this when evaluating houses for sale.

Are you considering other cities with houses for sale?

If you are looking for similar places to buy a house that are just like Ashill, examine this short list of cities below from outside of the region of South West for some inspiration.

If none of these suit your interest, we suggest you visit our page with all of the relevant data concerning houses for sale in the UK, allowing you to buy the right property.

Or, consider buying a leasehold property instead which may be cheaper. However, you will also have to learn what will happen when a leasehold expires so you know how to deal with this side of the law.

What’s the rental yield in general for the city of Ashill?

You may have heard of rental yield as being important for investors who wish to make a sizable profit on their rental properties. If this sounds like you and you’re looking to invest in a house currently for sale and collect rental income in Ashill this statistic is what you were looking for.

Data should also be compared to the broader region of the UK (South West) alongside Somerset then looked at with other statistics like the area’s rent and the turnover of sale of the houses in question. It could be that an investor prefers to make a profit on the sale of a house rather than the rental income and optimal properties for this investment varies throughout Ashill.

This decision is made differently depending on the investor’s tolerance for risk, investing strategy, the location they’re investing in and their overall goal for buying a house currently listed for sale.

Average Yield Average Asking rent Turnover (rental) Turnover (sale)
Ashill £0 £991 no relevant data for this city £0
Somerset 3.77% £1,174.60 138.81% 20.04%
South West 0.04 1,078.69 £1 17.35%

As you observe table above, it could be valuable to contrast these figures with other pieces of data relevant to the process of buying like the crime rate or the appreciation of houses for sale in Ashill.

As you can tell, the best conclusions are drawn when the buyer of a house for sale looks at all the data involved holistically and doesn’t make quick decisions based on one or two pieces of data. As an example, comparing the data with the number of property sold per month (11) will be useful.

Are there more or fewer houses being built in Ashill?

The growth of an area like Ashill can be a great indicator of a thriving city and the influx of new people can drive demand for housing and help appreciate the value of your house after you buy it.

Paying attention to the table below tells you how the number of houses has changed over time at one year, three year and five year intervals.

1 year 3 years 5 years
Ashill growth rate 4% 19% 28%

Despite the number of houses being built rising, this may not indicate that the housing price of the houses for sale is going up. It could be the case that there are a lot of new builds in the area which are causing the supply of the houses for sale to match demand and this could cause a decline in house price as time goes on.

Make sure you do your own research specific to the city of Ashill if you want to find out the exact reasons for the housing change.

In Ashill, what are the demographics like?

In the city of Ashill, has the population grown or shrunk?

Population growth in Ashill is important to know if there is housing demand and the total population may also be looked at as large populations commonly have a lot of buyer demand.

In Ashill, 50898 people live in the city as their main place of residence.

It is important to note that it is not the case that everyone likes a large population to live in. People who tend to prefer a more relaxed life are more likely to buy or rent somewhere to live that has a small population and perhaps also wouldn’t mind if the population isn’t growing.

Other people also like to have a mix of both. Where they can visit rural areas and also benefit from the amenities of a busy city.

In Ashill in the previous five years, have population numbers transformed?

Five years may seem like a long time but it is rare for a city to grow that much unless there is dramatic population growth. In Ashill, this change has been 4%.

Someone who wishes to find out how this change has occurred over a longer period of time may also wish to read the headings below and see if the change has continued throughout the past decade too. Or if the change is only true for the more recent figure for five years of 4%.

Over the last decade, how has the population differed in Ashill?

Populations change all the time but if there is a clear change in population in the last ten years this is even more reliable data about the population of the area as opposed to five. This adjustment in population works out to be 7% in Ashill.

What this statistic is like in comparison to the population change in five years should provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what direction the population is heading in.

In recent years because of the pandemic, it is common to see dramatic differences in the population change in the last five years when comparing it to ten as people realise they can work from home but still keep the current jobs they have.

This means they can move to cities they wouldn’t have considered otherwise and be location-independent of their source of income. Perhaps making a longer commute into the office every week for example.

In general, do people commit a lot of crime in Ashill?

For the city of Ashill, crime rate is at 5533%. So for every 1000 people in the area, 5533% commit a crime which is prosecuted. Paying close attention to this figure of crime rate is not only important for the value of a house but also to calculate the maintenance cost of owning a house and how attractive an area can be for future buyers.

So, compare it to the nationwide average of 79.52 per 1000 people and consider if you are happy with this figure based on the price you’re paying for a house you’re interested in.

On top of this, houses that are in areas where there is a high crime rate tend to have to pay higher insurance rates, costing a homeowner in the long term.

Additionally, paying for further security on a house such as CCTV or potentially gates and fences that deter thieves may be necessary for an area with a high crime rate.

How much are those living in Ashill earning?

To put this into perspective, the average income of Ashill is £40,133.33.

This figure for average household income usually goes up alongside the percentage of people who have degrees.

However, this is not a hard and fast rule, there are many factors influencing the buying power of a population and hence the appreciation of housing and the number of houses for sale in the area. This can include the rental yields of the area and other demographic statistics like crime rate.

Nonetheless, it cannot be argued that those with degrees tend to live in more affluent areas as 82% of people who achieve a first in degree level education are owners of the place they live.

In the city of Ashill, the demographics are unique and must be looked at by themself to make a conclusion about the area before buying a house. This is because the growth could be greatly different to the wider area of Somerset for example.

These demographics for Ashill may impact the price of a house, how this house grows over time and the profitability of a house if you are buying it for an investment so knowing the area is crucial for a landlord making a purchasing decision in the city of Ashill in South West.
