Premier League house prices soar

money2House prices close to Premier League football grounds have increased by almost two and a half times over the last ten years, according to research by Halifax.

The average house price in the postal districts of the 20 clubs kicking-off the 2013/14 season next weekend has increased by 135% (£183,583) in the past decade; from £136,300 in 2003 to £319,800 in 2013. This is equivalent to a weekly rise of £353 and is double the 68% increase in house prices across England and Wales as a whole over the period.

The average house price in the 20 Premier League stadium postal districts of £319,800 is a third (£79,500) higher than the average for the whole of England and Wales (£240,300).

Winners and losers
Average prices have more than doubled since 2003 in the areas close to five Premier League grounds. The biggest increase has been close to the home of 2011/12 champions, Manchester City, with the average home value in the postal district of the Etihad Stadium rising by 259% over the decade. The area around newly promoted Hull City’s KC Stadium has seen the second biggest increase with a rise in average property prices of 162%. Chelsea and Fulham recorded the third biggest rises (both 102%), followed by Arsenal (101%).

Newcastle United finished bottom of the Premier League house price table with the average value of properties close to its home ground falling by 11% between 2003 and 2013; the only stadium to record a decline in prices over the past decade.

Three of the five Premier League postal districts that have recorded the biggest house price increases over the last ten years are home to stadia that have been built since 2000. In contrast, four of the five Premier League stadium postal districts that have seen the smallest house price growth have stadia that were opened before the outbreak of the Second World War. Newcastle United’s ground, built in 1892, is one of the oldest in the Premier League.

Craig McKinlay, Mortgage Director, Halifax said: “The areas surrounding many of the country’s top football clubs have seen house prices rise considerably during the past ten years, with some of the best performers being those clubs with new grounds.

“The boost to property prices in these areas partly reflects the local regeneration that typically takes place alongside the building of modern sporting arenas, including improved transport links. There are, however, significant variations in home prices around the nation’s leading clubs with some supporters needing to pay far more to live near the ground of their favourite team than others.”

Price variations around Premier League grounds
The postal district covering both Chelsea and Fulham Football Clubs (SW6) is the most expensive to live in with an average house price of £851,812. This is more than thirteen times the average price in the least expensive Premier League postal district of L4: home to both Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs with an average house price of £63,974.
