Sheffield House Prices Divergence - Silverdale Close, Affluent Area's Forecast

Housing-Market / Sheffield Jun 29, 2014 - 03:42 AM GMT

By: N_Walayat


Sheffield house prices are showing a huge divergence between affluent and deprived areas of the city in terms of the rate of annual increase where typically affluent areas of the city are experiencing a trend in house price inflation of an average of 5% per annum whilst deprived areas are experiencing what can only be classed as random price action, where similar properties even on the same street can deviate greatly by as much as 1/3rd in price as illustrated by several study's of sale prices of properties sold across streets in deprived areas of the city that have yet to exhibit a trend in house prices.

In summary, prospective home buyers should take notice of the fragmented nature of the city which can make a huge differences both in terms of the quality of life, school catchment etc. However, the best areas of the city can be found to be concentrated in the South West of the city as the affluent residents continue to price most local house hunters out of these areas, just as is the case for many areas of the UK. Furthermore, the most affluent area's of the city tend to have a buffer zone of up and coming areas that acts to further the gap in house prices between relatively short distances.

Affluent Areas of Sheffield

Sheffield House prices in the S11 area as illustrated by analysis of Silverdale Close are increasing at an average rate of 5% per annum, a trend that is inline with the national forecast for the UK housing bull market to trend higher into the end of 2018 and therefore whilst lagging the national average (10% per annum) still is represents a huge difference to that that which is transpiring in the deprived areas of the city.

However, it should be noted that house price valuation sites such as Zoopla and tend to typically over value properties by an average of 5% as illustrated by the in-depth analysis of Silverdale Close, that could be extrapolated to other streets in the area.
