As you can tell, this figure along with the number of people who have degrees roughly correlate. For reference, the percentage of people who have degrees in the UK is 22.6% and the average household income is.

As a general rule, the bigger the difference between this 22.6% figure and the percentage of people with a degree in Bulverhythe, the bigger the difference in the ability to earn and hence buy a house. 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.
