NEW Knight Frank web­site www. myprop­er­ty­ge­nius.com lets you see what’s trend­ing in your area.

For ex­am­ple, when I en­tered my own London post­code, I dis­cov­ered that val­ues had gone up by 69% in the past five years, that #bar­recore, #brunch and #chick­enkiev were trend­ing on Twit­ter (most log­i­cal as there are 29 pubs to 15 gyms), Ja­panese food is all the rage and my chil­dren (if they ex­isted) would have a 77% chance of get­ting into their pri­mary school of choice.

The web­site also re­ports on ev­ery­thing from lo­cal farmer’s mar­kets, cafes and su­per­mar­kets to the av­er­age ask­ing price and sale price for a prop­erty such as mine.

I then en­tered my par­ents’ post­code, in deep­est Lan­cashire, and found that there are 19 pubs to three gyms (I’m not in­sin­u­at­ing any­thing) and that 317 loft con­ver­sions have re­ceived plan­ning per­mis­sion in the past three years. Oh, and #brunch is trend­ing on Twit­ter, prob­a­bly from the last time I vis­ited.
