Always consider average rental yield when searching for houses for sale in Brenkley

Are there more or fewer houses being built in Brenkley?

The growth of an area like Brenkley 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
Brenkley growth rate -15% -1% 3%

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 Brenkley if you want to find out the exact reasons for the housing change.

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 Brenkley this statistic is what you were looking for.

Data should also be compared to the broader region of the UK (North East) alongside Tyne and Wear 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 Brenkley.

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)
Brenkley £0 £942 no relevant data for this city £0
Tyne and Wear 5.54% £749.28 138.20% 21.54%
North East 0.05 757.25 £1 19.25%

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 Brenkley.

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 (17) will be useful.

On average, what is the figure for the asking price of a house for sale in Brenkley?

Average price of houses for sale in Brenkley

Average asking price (3 bed) £231,721
Average asking price (4 bed) £348,363
Average asking price (5 bed) no relevant data for this city

The above table is perfect for understanding the distribution of properties in the area as well as looking at this data alongside the average asking price per square foot of £0. Telling you what type of house is most in demand relative to the price of the area.

In Brenkley, what is the crime rate?

For every one thousand people living in Brenkley, 9500% commits crimes and are prosecuted. Coming to a conclusion as to whether all the other factors of your house purchase like the house price justify this figure when contrasting it with the UK average of 79.52 is something you should do as a homeowner.

It could be that the crime rate is higher than you expected but there it is worth the population growth, appreciation of the house and worth the relative price you are purchasing the house for.

Nonetheless, the crime rate of 9500% is not a statistic that should just be ignored as you could have to pay more for things like home insurance and install additional security on your house if the rate is particularly high.

Either way, burglaries are not something you would want to encounter in a house. Whether that be a house you are living in or a house you are renting out to tenants.

A Professional, managerial or administrative 4

C2 Skilled manual workers 21
D Semi and unskilled manual workers 15
