Providing the right amount of green space for people in the UK is a difficult subject because there are clear benefits for human health but at the same time, it is hard to make sure all areas of the UK can get enough greenery.

How much are those living in Cosheston earning?
You may be wondering what the amount people earn has to do with house price. Well, house prices generally go up as people earn more not just because they can afford more valuable properties but also because good areas generally attract more desirable infrastructure. For reference, the average household income is £31,200.
This may be better schools, doctors and areas with lower crime rates. This results in a snowball effect which polarises different areas further, increasing the demand for housing in richer areas by a greater amount. And increasing the proportion of people with high social grade scores. For Cosheston this figure is 9%.
Is the education level of Cosheston important when buying a house?
The number of people as a percentage who have been through university and gained a degree is 16%. The ability to buy a home is greatly influenced by the number of people who have degrees. £31,200 is the amount people in Cosheston are earning.
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 Cosheston, 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.
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 Cosheston, what is the crime rate?
In Cosheston, for every 1000 people, there is currently a crime rate of 121. 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 (121 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.
