How Homes in the UK Compare to Their European Rivals
A two-minute read looking at the price of property across our continent.
The month-long football festival AKA the Euros 2021 kicked off at the weekend.
And the home nations of England, Scotland, and Wales are all competing to win the crown of the best national side in Europe.
A win for England would be priceless, and we thought it might be a bit of fun to look at how property prices compare across the continent.
So, we jumped on Google to see what the average prices for a place to call home are in the following eight countries taking part in the 24-nation tournament. (Stats taken from 2020 – 2021 unless noted.)
England – £268,000
Wales – £178,907
Scotland – £164,099
France – £200,241
Across other parts of Europe, the focus is on the average price based on a square metre of the property.
Germany – £2,922 – per square metre (psm)
Portugal – £964 – psm
Spain – £2,071 – psm (based on new build properties)
Switzerland – £5,078 – psm
To give you a comparison, the average price psm across England and Wales was £2,954 (Jan 2021) and in Scotland £1,579 (2018).
And just like star footballers, the average values depend on how in-demand the areas are.
The cost of properties in many of the above countries is much higher in cities and areas where people buy holiday / second homes.
At Chamberlains, we can’t predict with any guarantee who will win the Euros when it concludes at Wembley Stadium on 11 July, but we can guarantee you a champion level of service if you choose us to help with your move.
