Interactive Sports League Table for Property Prices

Published on 3 November, 2016

Did you know that your property’s proximity to a sports ground can affect its price? Moreover, the type of sport itself can also be a factor, with certain forms of competitive activities having an influence on the value of your home.

This is according to findings from our Best Sport for your House Price interactive league table, which as the name suggests, is something you can use to find out the average prices of the properties in the same postcode as your local sports grounds and stadia. For example, the results show how northern homes close to rugby league grounds tend to have asking prices below the national average, while those close to major golf courses have the opposite effect.

Take a look at the interactive table below to see who the winners and losers are in the house price stakes, and find out if your local club is affecting your home’s value.

How we did it

We took the top six most watched sports in the UK, which are golf, horseracing, football, cricket and both codes of rugby. We then looked at the top 20 most attended stadiums or venues for these, and examined the average house prices of each one’s respective postcode.

These figures were then compared against the current national average - which is £219,000 according to the ONS - to help us organise our findings into our Best Sport for your House Price league table.

Top findings

Some of the headline findings from our data includes how:

  • Golf is the best sport for house prices, with neighbouring homes averaging £419,446
  • Rugby league is the worst sport, with nearby properties averaging £163,508
  • The highest house prices are near Lord’s cricket ground
  • The lowest prices for homes are near to Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium
  • Homes next to top flight stadia are worth nearly double those near clubs in the third division

How to use it

Our interactive property league table is simple to use, there are several ways you can filter the results to quickly find out how house prices have been affected near you. Search by: sport, stadium, city, club, capacity, league tier, county, postcode, or even by the average house price itself. You can also change the number of results you want the league to display.

So, from White Hart Lane in the capital, to Edgbaston, Anfield and indeed further afield, start filtering to find out how the sporting world is affecting the average house prices in your area.
